Skift Take

Despite New York's strong showing, the U.S. is slipping in the rankings while the UK moves up thanks to London's post-Olympic glow.

According to its latest survey of prospective travelers, trends will change slightly over the next year. The United States, for instance, will lose its top spot to France, falling from first to third place as a desired destination country for the more than 6 percent of the total global tourism industry who identify as LGBT. New York City, however, will retain its No. 1 spot as the most popular city for LGBT travelers in 2013.

The United Kingdom, meanwhile, will move up from fourth to second, apparently basking in the post-Olympic glow. London, too, will move ahead of Paris to No. 4 on the list of popular cities.
