I first came across the study which mentioned that San Antonio has the highest number of same-sex couples raising children in the Dallas Voice.
http://www.dallasvoice.com/samesex-parenting-study-1062107.html

According to their snapshot San Antonio has 1,180 Houston has 2,458 and Dallas has 3,178 same-sex couples that are raising children. In the three cities, this comes out to 6,816 total.

I had to dig to find the data for Austin itself when I first did the looking around and I forgot to bookmark the data but will look for that for you as well.

As per the statement in my release, My research shows a bit of an error as I was in a rush to find the statistic when I wrote it.
According to :
http://www2.law.ucla.edu/williamsinstitute/publications/TexasCensusSnapshot.pdf
There are 2984 Same-sex couples in Travis county. When I read that, I mistakenly married that to the other set of statistics that I already had.

http://www.dallasvoice.com/samesex-parenting-study-1062107.html
According to their snapshot
San Antonio has 1,180
Houston has 2,458
Dallas has 3,178
same-sex couples that are raising children.
6,816 total.

It's impossible for Austin to make up 1,184 same-sex couples raising children when in all of Travis county there are only (comparatively) 2,984 same-sex couples.

There's another report from the Williams Institute here as well http://www2.law.ucla.edu/williamsinstitute/publications/TexasCensusSnapshot.pdf
