This is so weird! I was born and raised in Seattle and I have made many trips to San Francisco. I have only lived in Atlanta for 1 month, and I can definately say that I notice the gayness way more here, then in Seattle or San Francisco. In those two cities its concentrated in certain neighborhoods and you know where they are, here, its everywhere!

Well that's because Midtown is gay central - it's rare for an entire city business district to be so gay. But they deserve it they practically turned the whole place around.

That is untrue...there are many suburban areas of the city where the gay community is well established.

That's exactly how I feel -- not that I mind. I think it's wonderful that people feel they can be themselves.

This is one of the funnies threads I have ever read in the ATL section.

Ok tell us more about these Telly tubbys? Is there a black one? How many other colors are there beside purple?

Also what race of strait people hate gays the most? I notice most of those cities are in Cali, San Fran & Seattle have a lot of Asians. Atlanta has a lot of blacks. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Ok ok more on these Telly Tubby things!!!!

Yes the Reverend Jerry Falwell stated that Tinky Winky was a gay role model!

Tinky Winky - the Gay Teletubby?? (http://www.rightgrrl.com/carolyn/teletubbies.html - broken link)

If he said so, it must be true! I believe that Rev. Falwell foiled a communist plot to convert all the children of the world into homosexuals. Thank God for him!

I live smack dab in the middle of Gwinnett County off of Sugarloaf, with my boyfriend. Our neighbors love us! We have gotten more compliments on the things we have done with our house and yard since we moved in. Everyone is more than friendly. I am very comfortable where I am. There may be some people that aren't happy that we are in the neighborhood, but if so, I haven't seen them.

I have a friend that lives in Seattle now; when she was moving to Atlanta from San Francisco years ago, her househunting criteria was to look for the neighborhoods with an ubiquitous number of rainbow flags hanging outside. She figured that was a reliable indication of the neighborhood's upward mobility. History would back up her theory.
Based on this, the neighborhoods just south of downtown would be a good bet right now.

Yeah, i'm sure cities like Newnan, Peachtree City, McDonough, Covington, and Villa Rica are very welcoming to gays. LOL.
