We're in the midst of voting for this year's Out Traveler Awards, but we saved the most controversial category for last: best gayborhood. We have ownership in the neighborhoods we consider our own; those places we can let our hair down and be ourselves. But what really makes the best LGBT neighborhood? Is it restaurants, bars, walkability, clean streets, public transit, or safety? Think long and hard before you vote, because the top queer area may not be the one down the street, but the enclave we discovered while on vacation or during a work trip. Our editors picked the 10 nominees, but we're amenable to write-in candidates in the comments section. Polls close in two weeks and we'll announce winners the first week of December. Happy voting!
