Gay and Lesbian Missouri


Missouri is known as the Show-Me State. As of 2006, Missouri
has an estimated population of 5,842,713.

The two largest Missouri rivers are the Mississippi
and the Missouri river that flows west to east through the state connecting the two
largest cities, Kansas City and St. Louis.

Residents of the state's large metropolitan areas, including those where most of the
state's population resides Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia, typically consider themselves
Midwestern, while in rural areas and cities farther south (Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff,
Springfield, and Sikeston), people typically consider themselves more Southern.
