poolside saidwow, I didn't expect to see these kind of fear and negative responses I have had a home in Belize for 10 years.
It's not homophobic, just more like a thing people don't discuss much. There are gay bars, depends on what towns you go to. But for the most part, people just leave you alone. It's mostly parties you meet people at. Easy to meet everyone.
Sorry if I came off negative by mentioning homophobia. I studied the place as a possible expat location when I was considering retirement overseas but decided against it due to what I read and simply thought to ask since you've made a home there. My concern was not fear based but comfort based. It's not as if I'm unfamiliar with homophobia, but also I'd rather avoid inundating myself with it.
But thank you otherwise for your take on gay life there. It is appreciated. I'd be okay with being left alone, as you say, but also as you mention, I think I would not care much to live where being gay is "a thing people don't discuss much".
