Campus Pride, a non-profit devoted to creating safer communities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender college students, recently released its 2010 Climate Index of gay-friendly colleges. The group collects its data through the careful analysis of campus LGBT policies across America; schools that are seen as most accepting are given five stars -- an honor bestowed on just 19 out of 230 universities. See below a selection, in no particular order, of five-star schools -- and visit Campus Pride for the full list.
