As a Texas resident, it used to perplex me, why a place like that springs up where its not wanted, but teen mothers with loud boyfriends spring up next door to me all the time - where they aren't wanted. And "want" can be a tricky word when describing business. Supply and demand works better to explain such matters. Gays are all over Texas with no plans to leave so there is a demand. And I think people are too hard on conservatives. Out of the three reactions printed - only one was caustic and I think the old adage "few care" applies to a walled gay retreat. Those conservatives won't kick up too much dust over something they can't see. But mark my words, several may venture in to investigate.
