Here in the middle of nowhere, our house is about as gay as it gets. There's actually quite a few gay couples here in town, but we're scattered all over the city.
St. Louis has several areas that are or were known for the concentration of gay people. The original gayborhood was Soulard next to downtown (where Anheuser-Busch is located), where the second largest Mardi Gras celebration in the country takes place. Next door, Lafayette Square has a nice concentration of gay-renovated Victorian mansions that were gay-renovated and bought up by straight people. The Central West End, which housed dignitaries during the 1904 World's Fair, is a beautiful neighborhood which was gay-restored during the '70s and '80s, and is now owned by straight people. Currently, quite a few couples live along Grand South Grand south of Tower Grove Park, which is where PRIDE is held each year, but that neighboorhood never really went through the decline like the formerly-affluent neighboorhoods did. GSG is more of an internationally flavored area than anything anymore. Within the last few years, a new strip of bars has concentrated along Manchester Street in between the Central West End and South City neighborhoods that looks to be the new gay enclave in St. Louis.
With the advent of household internet, I don't think there's really as much of a demand for gayborhoods like there used to be when people had to leave their front door in order to talk to people.
