    I'm getting pretty tired of Utah, looking for a community more inline with my own values. Any suggestions?

    Left leaning for sure.
    You can find that anywhere.

    I humbly suggest the gay-freindly atmosphere and gayborhoods of New Orleans, LA.

    You wouldn't be the first Gay Guy who came here for a short visit and never left icon_exclaim.gif

    I gather he hasn't found it in his present SLC. Is your own Phoenix left-leaning?

    More of a mix here (as with most places). It's easy to find people to hang out with...actually easier here than SoFla. If it weren't for the weather and lack of beaches, I'd probably stay here permanently. icon_lol.gif

    Why not Toronto? I haven't been, but I'd always thought it to be a tolerant gay-friendly city. I was born and grew up in Sydney and have been told the two cities are similar in some ways.

    AD, IF....IF ...I was ever to leave my beloved and unique New Orleans; Wilton Manors would be the first place I would check out moving to.

    I'd live in Vancouver BC in a heartbeat if I could afford it.

    San Diego sucked.

    Seattle has advantages. But, the gay hub is the Capital Hill area, west of downtown. If you can't live and work near there...you'll discover gays don't like to drive anywhere because of the traffic.

    I don't intend to stay.

    The vast majority of Seattle gays are morons and dolts.

    The most left leaning states are often those in worse shape financially, cutting back services if you are not in a protected union (but even that is changing), and most prone to having the highest taxes.

    The are 4 lgbt households within a half block of me and we're definitely a left-leaning city. The sheriff has dressed in drag for hiv fundraisers several times and the Chief of Police and Sheriff jockey for position about the groups marching at Pride. We're also the only city in the state with full anti-discrimination laws.

    After living in Seattle for a few years, I'm starting to agree with smartmoney. Unfortunately moving back to Sydney is going to be tough, as everyone wants to live there and it is now one of the most expensive places in the world to live icon_sad.gif

    I moved to Montréal from Ohio. Besides having a great quality of life (if you like parks, culture, diversity, awesome bike and transport networks, etc.) it is possible to either submerge yourself in a typical gay scene, if that is what you like, or find guys who live independently of the scene. The overall culture here is to be yourself. Its the least conformist place I've been to. The possible downside: Depending on your profession, it may be difficult to find work here if you are not bilingual. But that did not stop me.

    Lived in Provincetown year round for a number of years. Kind of a gay, liberal Mecca and incredibly beautiful. It's really difficult to make a liviing there year round because of the tourist economy so best to just visit.

    In New York you can be and be around any community you choose even if you live in one of the boroughs.

    I'm thinking I may try Chicago next.
