Gay and Lesbian Kentucky


Kentucky is the 37th largest state in terms of land area, and ranks
26th in population. More than half of Kentucky's population and over 80%
of the state's population growth are concentrated in what is referred to
as the Golden Triangle, framed by Louisville, Lexington and the suburban
Northern Kentucky region. The capital is Frankfort and the largest
city is Louisville with a 2005 census estimated population of 556,429.

Kentucky is known as the "Bluegrass State," a nickname based on the fact
that bluegrass is present in many of the lawns and pastures throughout the state.

Kentucky is well known for thoroughbred horses, horse racing, local bourbon
whisky distilleries, bluegrass music and college basketball. Kentucky ranks
4th among U.S. states in the number of automobiles and trucks assembled.

The biggest day in horse racing, the Kentucky Derby, is held in Louisville.
Kentucky is home to no major league sports team but several minor league teams.
