This will effectively destroy the diversity that exists on one of the only roads where you can buy cuisine from all over the world. I feel they want to eliminate anything that hurts the "patriarchal family" structure. They may accept Lipps now, but I believe that will be short-lived. Look up the Family Research Council. FRC | Pro Marriage & Pro Life Organization in Washington DC The attorney that is fighting the Pink Pony, (Scott Bergthold) and works for Brookhaven is a regular speaker for them. The Southern Poverty Law Center declares the Family Research Council a "Hate Group".
True, but luckily the best shops and restaurants on Buford Highway exist in Doraville and points north. The Brookhaven portion of BuHi is 90% residential.

I would say that Brookhaven is not gay unfriendly. It just depends on what you mean exactly by "gay friendly".

As for the poster above who mentioned the "conservative SEC school" types moving in, that has been my experience as well. Brookhaven is no Decatur, and anyone making it out to be is not telling the whole truth, and maybe trying to sell you something.

The only thing holding Brookhaven back from being as successful as fellow Dekalb city Decatur is lack of its own school system, but yes many residents are more conservative than those in Decatur (not that it lacks a sense of community)

I've never thought of strip clubs, porn shops and gays as having anything in common.

Perhaps like beauty, it is in the eye of the beholder.

There are a lot of differences besides the school system, primarily the patterns of development and housing stock.

They do in some people's minds. As a matter of fact, many consider them all one in the same...

If you are gay there, you will not get a hassle. Period. To assume otherwise is just silly. Brookhaven is a variety of people and it extends well beyond its historic district.
A lot of the girls that work at the Pink Pony are either bi-sexual or lesbian. A lot of the female customers that come in also are the same. It is an issue! It's part of their "dominionist" (Google it!) attitudes. If the dominant male can make the money that's okay. The female must rely on the male. That's the Christian, conservative, right-wing thinking at work. That's why Lipps is left alone and the females are attacked.
