    Hi All,

    Looking for advice. I just got back from Miami and I live in Metro Detroit Michigan. I am just recently out and most people have taken it well and some have not. I really enjoyed Miami and I have been to Tampa several times and I was thinking about making a life change and move to one those areas. It will be hard to leave family behind, but I won't miss the cold. Advice?

    Have a job first. Both cities have been hit hard by the Great Recession, Miami recently recovering with an influx of South American buyers/spenders/visitors. That is my major piece of advice.

    If you really want to be "out" and enjoy a great lifestyle in a very diverse culture, then Miami it should be.

    Tampa is "The South" and is pretty conservative (read: full of gay hating Republicans).

    Miami is the international "Gateway to the Latin America and the Caribbean".
