Austin scored a perfect 100 in the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) annual rankings of American cities with local laws and policies that protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people from discrimination.

The gay-rights advocacy organization’s Municipal Equality Index ranked 353 cities nationwide on several categories including nondiscrimination laws, relationship recognition, em­­ploy­­ment practices, municipal services and programs and law enforcement practices.

Dallas came in second among Texas cities, earning 91 points. Other highly rated Texas cities included Fort Worth (83 points), San Antonio (72) and Houston (54).

The national average was 59.
