    No I didn't see the "california vs. florida" topic and decide I want to move.

    I've been there 3 times and fucking loved it. I was mostly in Orlando though I hear the southern part is way faggier.

    I've heard Wilton Manors is the gayest neighborhooood??

    I want to live in an area that has a lot of gay bars so I can go out all the time and get laid all the time.

    It would also help if there is a lot of Hispanics I don't want to see pure white people all the time.....it just reminds me of the Holocaust, world wars, slavery and imperialism...fucking monsters.

    Your reasons for moving are pretty shallow but you're very young and if I had it all to do over again............yeah, I'd probably do the same. Just please be smart when you start you new gay life in Wilton Manors. Barebacking is almost the norm down here and it just takes one prick (pun intended) to change yer life forever.

    Dj1990 saidI've heard Wilton Manors is the gayest neighborhooood??

    Correct, and not just because I live here (though it does help icon_cool.gif ). My partner comes from Boston originally, and he loves it here.

    WM is listed as the 2nd or 3rd gayest city in the US by percentage of population, though it's a small place. Rainbow flags fly everywhere, most stores are gay owned, the city council is nearly all gay, and PDAs on the sidewalks are perfectly acceptable.

    This is a real city, not a neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, though they do adjoin. Which means the beach is nearby, including the gayest one in South Florida, as well as a legal public nude beach a little further south (though Republicans and evangelicals are always trying to close it down, naturally). FtL has its own gay attractions, especially the greatest concentration of gay guest houses for when your friends visit. And some permit day passes or just dropping in for drinks for those with bars, if your cruising favors that scene.

    Hispanics are present, though not as many as in Miami. But then Miami is not very gay friendly, and while Miami Beach remains so, the actual gay scene has died off since developers priced them out. Which is partly why Gay Central moved north, first to Fort Lauderdale, and now Wilton Manors and some of neighboring Oakland Park.

    E-mail me directly for questions and more info. WM has a couple of gay guest houses where you can stay and judge the area for yourself before moving, and the FtL guest houses at the beach are only 4 miles away.

    Southern Florida is probably the way to go then.

    California is a bit more on the ball. I've had friends on both coasts, and the ones in Cali tend to be a bit more together. However, by contrast, the beaches are much better out here, IMHO. Through Orlando can still be seen as the Deep South and all that comes with it. The recession is slowly ending down here. However, there is very little "industry." Everything tends to be related to tourism.

    It's hot down here, temperature wise. And when you drive more north? Its still hot.

    I'm not sure where you think everyone's white. I guess you've never been down here. Orlando has those parks, which brings a certain crowd. But its not like that in the rest of the state.

    I've done both coasts. What more do you want to know?

    Peace,
    Bardy

    There is indeed crime in low-income neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale, just like other large cities. Therefore do not live in those neighborhoods, or drive through them, and which aren't gay anyway. There is very little crime in Wilton Manors.

    The gay bashing is greatest in northern Florida, which is very redneck, especially near Georgia and Alabama. What bashing we see down here is mostly in Miami. I just wrote that there are rainbow flags everywhere, and PDAs are common where we live - that hardly qualifies as gay bashing, and you won't see that in northern Florida, nor city councils that are predominantly gay, or gay pride festivals & parades. And I can walk into any store in the Fort Lauderdale area and openly speak of buying household things for my partner & myself, or buying gifts for his birthday, Christmas, Valentine's, etc, and everyone is very friendly & helpful, no bashing or disapproval ever.

    So I take strong exception to your characterization of Wilton Manors and the surrounding area, and the thought that a gay would be happier in northern Florida is laughable, especially after what the OP said interests him. Nevertheless, I suggested the OP come here for a stay and judge for himself. Because besides issues of gay acceptance, where there's no comparison between the north and south, there's also personal taste.

    Hun, the gay celebrities ride around here in Rolls Royces and hyper-expensive Euro sports cars. I ride in a little Ford. icon_sad.gif

    Well I wondered what your game was, because what you were saying made no sense whatsoever. But I did not want to see Dj misled, or anyone else who reads this thread.

    Dj won't upset our delicate ecological balance down here. And given our age difference, I doubt our paths would ever cross, nor would we give ourselves a second look if they should. No, I feel obliged to tell the truth, not distort facts for my own agenda. Otherwise my credibility as a source of info for South Florida would be ruined for everyone.

    Sounds super fun. What about the night life though? Do people go out and stay late, dancing and getting drunk into the deep hours of the morning?

    I don't want to go to California because earthquakes creep me out.
    I experienced an earthquake once in Bosnia. NEVER WANT TO AGAIN.

    So, you are moving to Florida to fulfill your fantasy of being raped bareback?

    You did use the word: "unless". icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    ^Lol

    but what you described sounds like Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. I would go south if that's what you want.

    Orlando is good too, haven't seen anybody's face get chewed off here
