To clarify, the correlation between having a Master's in translation and the Latino population is exactly what was stated above - where there are Latinos, I will find work. And though a lot of the translating work I might do would not necessarily require education at the Master's level, it definitely would if I wanted to work in, say, a lawyer's office, or in the courts, or in a hospital. Those kinds of jobs generally pay better, and are in high demand, but require some sort of certification - a Master's in translation doesn't necessarily mean I'll be dealing with "higher-level" topics like shipping and commerce, it just cetifies that I know what I'm doing and have had formal training. Just knowing the language definitely isn't enough - that's where things can get majorly screwed up in interpretation, as I've seen many a time.

So to get off my soapbox now.....basically, there is definitely a correlation between Latino population and me getting a job with my master's.

As for the gay population - no correlation there, I just don't want to live in a hostile environment! As stated above, I haven't lived in the friendliest of places, and just want to know a bit about the area itself, not necessarily related to my master's or to work.

But thanks for the info - I definitely want to come give it a visit sometime soon to check it out for myself!
Your original posting was clear. Most of us understand clearly what you are asking and it makes sense. You will have a great opportunity in the Charlotte area and will have no problems being eight gay or Latino. Good luck.

What the heck is "eight gay"?
Eight gay or Latino sounds like the beginnings of a very bad walked-into-a-bar joke

(Ok, I know it was just a typo. Shoot me for not being able to resist)
