    Was thinking about moving to a different city and transferring universities.. Tired of Louisiana and it's closed minded people..

    What I'm looking for:

    Good Schools
    Gay friendly
    Friendly people
    Maybe a little cheap wouldn't hurt
    Preferably driving distance from Louisiana


    Any suggestions?

    Watch everybody say Houston or Dallas....personally I'm not too crazy about either one though. But guess you have to start somewhere, and that's a good start from where you're coming from.

    Houston is a black hole of despair. Move to California--you'll be blown away by deh boiz and their schools are pretty reputable.

    That won't fit his "a little cheap" criteria or driving distance from Louisiana.

    If you're going to suggest Texas, I'd say Austin over Houston or Dallas.

    Asheville is often listed as one of the top gay friendly cities in the US. It's a small town, very friendly people, very gay friendly. Granted it's in North Carolina, but "driving distance from Louisiana" doesn't put you in range of many blue states. There are number of colleges near Asheville. Not sure if they are good schools or not.

    Where else can he go that's within driving distance from Louisiana? Bentonville? Memphis? Jackson? The OP has limited his demographic preference.

    Canada. Its not within driving distance of the southern US which is something we advertise in our brochures.

    Kansas fits some of those requirements.. probably not as gay friendly as what could be, certainly and not within easy driving distance of Louisiana.. however great weather, good schools and certainly relatively cheap vs. other places.

    Ashville schools are pretty good. And the town is great. But I'm not sure swapping North Carolina for Louisiana is much of a step up and New Orleans is certainly gay friendly and has good schools. I think you need to get out of the south. Forget driving distance. Try Colorado or California. Broaden your horizons. My only requirement with my two boys was they go to a good school worth the money and it be no closer to home than 1000 miles. Spread your wings, bud. (My one exception might be Savannah, my home town, and Savannah College of Art and Design, SCAD, if you're arty and can afford it.)
