    I was trying to find a video of the clip from Coming to America where Eddie Murphy asks, "Where is the best place for a king to find a bride." And then him and Arsenio Hall go, "Queens!"

    But alas.

    Ah... gotcha.

    I should have said that the UK is ALSO pretty liberal. You're not gonna get hanged in either country... either in or out of the gay ghettos!

    Understand you now. All good!

    Anywhere in America.

    In America, nobody is going to hang you from a tree if you are gay.



    Sorry, can I just point out that the UK is incredibly liberal.



    Aldss: You live very near to London which some are calling the gay capital of the World right now. Can you not be yourself there? Guys come from from all over the World to do so!!

    Vacation wise, The US is an amazing country and you will meet great people pretty much wherever you go.


    Yep im not looking to get away from the uk to be myself, I live in London so yes its an amazing city to be yourself thats why im asking where in america dont want to go on holiday and have to hide anything.

    Honestly mate... you will not have a problem anywhere in the US.

    I live in London too and have lived and travelled widely in the US. Never had a single issue.... quite the opposite.

    Your question might also give the impression that you think you might have "not be" yourself in parts of the US. Firstly, it's simply not true. Secondly, no idea why you would think that. I've never heard that.

    I would just think about where appeals to you and book it. I wouldn't think about anything else.

    There aren't any wrong places to go visit, maybe only wrong neighborhoods in cities but that's everywhere, The only other wrong places would be places that don't hold any particular interest to you..
    For example, even though I've been, Florida holds no interest to me for a lot of reasons,, too crowded, too hot and humid in the summer, I'm not a beach type person,, don't like shopping,
    I'd rather go see someplace more to my liking even if it was hot and humid.

    If you will have the means to use a car while here then I'd say California. I would assume it will be a bigger change for you than going to New York. But LA or SF are not really all that pedestrian friendly unless you intend on narrowing yourself to only select areas of the city.

    New York would your best choice if you will be reliant on public transportation.

    If you want to be car-free and your gay self, then New York, Montréal, Toronto.

    OP: US native and fellow world traveller here, and here's my thrupenny's worth.

    There are in fact places in the US where people would go out of their way to make you uncomfortable to be yourself. But those are places where you'd get a cold shoulder or worse for being the wrong color, the wrong religion, or just for being from outside the local community, as well as for being gay. And fortunately most of those places are so small and isolated that you're not likely to wander into them. Even if you did wander into one, you'll find that your British accent wins you immediate forebearance.

    As for places where you can happily Glitter And Be Gay, which ones you should visit depends on your interests. Do you want to see contemporary America, up close an personal? See the major historic and cultural sites? Experience iconic wilderness locations? Or just shag a bunch of hot Yanks?

    Gi'us a bit more to go on and we can probably give you much more useful input.

    Canada. It's legal to be gay here. It's not the U.S.A. but there are no Republicans here. Our conservatives look like your liberals! Really. I have no idea why all of your gays haven't done the refugee thing and come up here.
