IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The scores are in and Iowa City is LGBT friendly. The City did well on the Human Rights Campaign 2013 Municipal Equality Index. Iowa City scored a 90 out of a possible 100.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, the report is not a ranking of the best cities for LGBT people to live. The campaign chooses cities to rate based on several factors including size.
