    Where can an interracial, married gay couple relocate where there is, gay acceptance, affordable housing, medical jobs/hospitals, good gyms and things to actually do. Rhode Island sucks and we want out as soon as we graduate medical school in 5 months. Please...anyone...advise. icon_biggrin.gif

    Check out Johnson City, Tennessee, a University/Medical College/Veterans Center, City. the Tree Streets district is beautiful with a lot of older homes, a lot of gays and believe it or not, even though in East Tennessee, quite open minded and the cost of living is great compared to the Eastern US. You'll be amazed at how much further your money will go for you here. There is one catch though !!!! I want a room !!! Just one !!! LOL !!!

    How about Vermont? Beautiful countryside and equal rights. I'd suggest Canadian cities, but I think it's not so easy to just pack up and move here.

    Phoenix is charming....It's just hotter than hell about 5 months out of the year....

    Big need for medical doctors to make a "KILLING" on all the deathly old people who have clogged their arteries over the years.....

    Move west my friends!

    since you're used to the weather, oddly for being as divided by cultural backgrounds, is actually open.

    I agree with this. Your OP makes me think legal marriage might be important to you and in the U.S. you count those places on one hand. DC is one of them. Canada as many have suggested, might be nice, but how easy is immigration for U.S. residents?

    u should look into vegas, great place to live if your in the medical field and once you get off the strip the cost of living is actually low to moderate and u cant ask for better weather and their is always something to do; gyms are plentiful, when i was competing in judo competition i went their a couple of times, trained in some of the places and it was impressive, the strip is just a tourist attraction.

    +1 ..big time, but dont forget the gay nude resorts on Avenida Caballeros :cP I haven't been to any there but I always remember the street name cus I thought it was funny. Its a nice place to visit though.

    I moved to San Diego, CA about 12 years ago to get away from the south Texas mindset, and I've never felt a need to look elsewhere. Los Angeles is close, Palm Springs is too... and Tijuana, MEX is like 45 minutes away. Got a great gay neighborhood which happens to have alot of medical centers nearby, (you guys are medical professionals yea?)

    The cost however is kind of up there, I believe it ranks 5th on top ten most expensive places to live in the US. Alot of people I know live further south near the border where new development has sprung up alot of neighborhoods in Chula Vista, or out in El Cajon near the Native American casinos.

    Mission Beach and Blacks Beach are awesome too icon_smile.gif

    I second San Diego. I moved here back in April and love it. The healthcare/biotech field is huge here (I came out without a job and found a job in biotech within a month; not that I'm suggesting you do this!)

    As far as affordability, you can find affordable condos if you know where to look (unless you're renting, in which case you'll have even more options).

    As far as things to do and nice weather, there is no better place than here (IMHO) hehe icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

    The NYC area outside of Manhattan. In particular, I would recommend parts of Queens (Jackson Heights, Astoria, Queens Village), and parts of Brooklyn (Park Slope, Williamsburg). It's a longshot but you might even find a place in Washington Heights in extreme uptown Manhattan but prices are a little higher and parts of it are not quite yet all that safe.

    What can you or anyone tell me about these areas? We'd like to head in a southerly direction so most of those mentioned are definitely considerations. Any blogs or websites to research or personal experiences/contacts that can provide more insight?
