ChilaxinJOCK09 saidI moved to Charleston @ 14, and went to college in Myrtle Beach. It has been hitting me now for a while and REALLY dawned hard on me tonight that I need to be around gay men......and def just need a change of scenery.
Is Atlanta a good place to go? Any suggestion besides NYC or LA which would prolly intimidate the hell out of me.....
You would be surprised about the cities in North Carolina. The small towns of NC are just as regressive as SC, but the cities are strangely gay friendly for the South.
I love Charlotte. It is progressive (compared to SC) it is vibrant and it is still small enough that it doesn't swallow you up. I like Raleigh less because it just isn't my vibe, but I have had so many people comment on how awesome the gay community is. Of course, Asheville also has a very artistic, eclectic community and the gay guys I know there LOVE it.
The LGBT communities in Charlotte, Raliegh and Greensboro (yes, there is a big gay community in Greensboro!!) all tend to run in the same circles.... they will travel from city to city for the parties.
I love Charlotte... I am moving there fulltime next year if I can.
