Hey guys, I'm going to Denver in July and trying to decide if I may want to move there. What are good areas to stay in, gay areas, what gay bars are there, or are there any bad areas? Appreciate any tips
Jockbod48 saidI'm familiar with Denver and the suburbs and am happy to offer my observations and preferences. I don't live in Denver, but have spent a whole lot of time there (business and with friends). There is definitely a good gay population and some cool places to hang out & meet the male population. These are my favorite 'gaborhoods' in no particular order:
The area to avoid is Aurora, IMO.
There are so many good areas downtown where you can get loft apartments or condos. These are walking distance from so many places. If you want a house, then the areas above are good for that. There are some good clubs and even a cool swim club or two (bathhouses with pools, decks, gyms, etc).
As I said above, I don't live in Denver, but I would be very happy to do so. I've always thought Denver would be a very good place to live. You have the city life, and skiing nearby. You have intelligence, diversity, and the place has a whole lot going for it. Good luck checking it out. If you have any questions, let me know & I'll help you out all I can.

pellaz saidthe city of Aurora, a Denver suburb, got a bad name after the horrific theater shooting with multiple deaths.I know that this is irrelevant to this topic but please stop beating up on Detroit, it is a very beautiful city that has gone through some extremely tough times and has been the victim of the classic American throwaway society. My home town of Buffalo has experienced similar problems as well but we are revitalizing. Give us a chance.
crime in the City of Denver is average. Denver or Aurora are no where near Detroit. As i mentioned the Denver neighborhoods; Swansea and 5 Points have higher than expected crime. I would still live there. A map of Denver crime per neighborhood:
jlly_rnchr saidMost major cities are.
pellaz saidWith the obvious exception of the largest cities in Texas- Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Fort Worth. In those four major cities just like the rest of Texas, gays are only tolerated and in many cases only barely tolerated. That is why gay men looking to relocate should heed the serious warning to stay away from Texas entirely. Even in its supposedly progressive capital city of Austin, gay men are only tolerated not fully accepted.jlly_rnchr saidMost major cities are.
