    Where do you live, and how gay friendly is it?

    I'm in DC. Gays are everywhere, everywhere. It's not just a big gay population, and there are very few areas that are "gay areas" with flags everywhere..just the whole metro are is extremely gay friendly.

    i live in the suburbs of LA, which is bush country. not too gay friendly and very family oriented, but with west hollywood only a 40 min drive away it isnt that bad. much better than my home town of mobile, al. we are close enough to LA that its not a big deal, but you dont want to walk down the street holding hand and kissing.

    I wouldn't necessarily say my neighborhood is gay friendly; I don't see too many gay couples out there. But it's mostly full of young frat boys and sorority girls so who knows. The Hillcrest area of San Diego is known as the "gay area" and is VERY gay friendly.

    Portland, OR is mostly gay friendly, but there are certain neighborhoods that are extremely homophobic.

    I live P/T in three extremely accepting and integrated communities with large ethnic mixes: Burlington, VT; Boston, MA; and London, England.

    I am very fortunate.

    I agree w/ wet - I live in Beaverton (Portland suburb) which is conservative/family oriented. Luckily my Partner and I have great neighbors who are very gay friendly.

    Wilton Manors, according to the Census Bureau, is the second-gayest place in the U.S., by percentage of population (first is West Hollywood). Needless to say, being gay is unremarkable here.

    I live just south of Oslo, and in the last 10 years or so i've noticed more and more homophobes people being shut out by friends and families and such than gays themselves.

    Gays and straights over here tend not to make a big show out of their sexual preferences..It's just who they are.

    I live in Columbia, SC. The city has a big gay population and is gay-friendly, but the suburbs are less so.

    Jacksonville, FL

    There are areas in the city where it is gay friendly but then other areas where they are not so much.

    I've never meet another gay person from my town.

    Then again we do have under 5000 people according to the last census.

    How do you find out how gay your home is census wise?
