    This seems to be my new life. Right now I'm in Wilmington NC. You probably don't know this but I beginning to think they have the highest per cap rate of hunks in the nation. It could be the nearby colleges and military bases. Or maybe it is just the fact that it is a surfing town. Its kind of cold today so I can't see them running around with the ultra cut bodies like I saw last time. It is suppose to hit the 70s tomorrow so maybe I'll see them flaunt what they got. The best part is they are so approachable and smile when you chat with them. Why oh why can't a gay ghetto be like this?

    Probably it is time for the masculine, athletic gays to discover places like Wilmington, NC and abandon the high priced, high crime plagued big cities like New York, Washington, and Miami. It is time to discover what small and mid sized cities both on the coasts and inland have to offer.

    Straight men are the epitome of masculine, sorry, you wont ever find a hunky gay....they just dont exist


    Some gay men have good bodies (probably form benching other airy homosexuals) but if they were to lift anything of substance, say anything more than 20lbs, their limp wrists would surley break

    Lol, you're obviously just trying to start a flame war. Have you looked at some of these guys pictures on here? I personally know gay men who hold strength titles at the state level.

    Apparently there is a gay scene here according to this article:
    http://gaytravel.about.com/od/wilmingtongaytravel/a/Gay_Wilmington.htm
    It is probably like Asheville, which is also gay friendly but given its small size you can meet all the gay men in town in a few nights. It seems that way even in the mid-size US cities.

    Well I'm heading back to Miami soon where there is a safety in numbers. There are plenty of hunks there too but plenty of attitude to go with it.

    I love quaint towns in beautiful settings with great outdoor sports opportunities and warm locals. I always meet some nice sexy guys out on the waves here and on the rivers in Asheville. They are so earthy and fit.

    I think the older I get the more attractive the smaller towns become even if it is harder to date or even get laid. I was discussing this with a friend from Charlotte as we were driving back from the mountains last week. He grew up in Miami but would move to Asheville if his job permitted it. It helps that many of his life long friends from Florida are moving to the area. He thinks just the idea of growing old in Ft Lauderdale, as so many gay men do, is depressing. I'm looking forward to heading down to South Florida but I know I will miss the wholesome friendly Carolina hunks.

    Has anyone else wanted to ditch the big city life for a quaint outdoorsy town but felt you would need a bigger gay scene?

    Never. First question I would have to ask you is, How many gay rights laws are in NC? None would be what I would think. California has many and I am a registered domestic partner, never wanted to get married. Nothing like that available in some of the areas you mentioned. It may appear to be heaven, but under the surface there, there are some pretty crazy right wing people. I love the bigger towns.

    ... potentially everywhere.

    I think there is a miscalculation in the whole 1/10 men are gay statistic. perhaps, between 4-6/10 are gay ... and just not willing to come out and be open.

    I think I know California a lot better than you know NC. But that doesn't surprise me. I expect you think this is a red state. Well, it is now slightly blue not just because Obama won but also the governor and one of two senators are democrats.

    My first reaction was to say it is not as homophobic as you think. After all I know that when Durham has its annual NC pride parade (which has been happening since the mid-80s) it looks like boystown with all the businesses lining the parade route flying rainbow flags.

    But then I decided to do a little research to back up my statement. While the rest of the country turned more red during the last election Charlotte, which is 2/3 white elected its second black democratic mayor. The city council is now a majority LGBT friendly. This is more impressive when you consider how many mega churches there are just outside the city. One reason I think explains why Charlotte is not among the 13 city and county governments in NC that have amended non-discrimination policies to include sexual orientation. We are hoping this will change soon. The first cities (Durham among them) amended the policy in the early 80s.

    Two cities Chapel Hill and Carboro have openly gay mayors. Three cities Durham, Chapel Hill and Carboro extend domestic partner benefits to city workers.

    Here is something else I found in doing my research:

    http://dym-sum.com/2009/06/24/no156/

    "North Carolina, which happens to be the only state in the Southeastern United States that does not have a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, will soon become one of the first states in the country to have a law on the books that combats anti-gay bullying in schools."

    This article that I stumbled upon really surprised me:

    "Anti-Gay Lyrics Shunned by Tiny North Carolina Town"

    http://www.progressivepuppy.com/the_progressive_puppy/2009/10/anti-gay-lyrics-shunned-by-tiny-north-carolina-town.html

    I want to go spend money in that town.

    Yes there are plenty of right wing nuts here too and the state has its share of homophobes. California though doesn't have any right?

    Again how many laws does the state have right now protecting you or offering domestic partner legislation, not in the future and what you hope for?
    California has its problems, like anywhere, but I wouldn't leave it for a small town in NC! Living here openly gay is not a problem at all or do you have to worry about it.
