Welcome to 300 East[/quote]
Ohhh, I loved 300 East - excellent restaurent.[/quote]

I felt the same when I would see these idiots on the streets in Florida yelling their anti-abortion retoric. I remember some young boy on the sidewalk next to my car yelling how sinful abortions are and that women that worked are going to hell . I rolled down my window and told him he needs to find a girlfriend. But you know what, we live in a free country. As long as there is no violence, people have a right to protest. Gays and Mormans are not exceptions. After living in London for many years, I got used to continuous protests, demonstrations, and anarcists movements about everything. Better to protest than participate in terrorism. Using the term "hate group" for hecklers is a bit strong. I would consider these hecklers as fanatics gone arwy. Or, if you are looking for a remedy for the Mormans, they could reroute protestors through the plains into hostile indian territory so they will be slaughtered as they did to pioneers in earlier times. LOL.

As a gay man that has lived in SoFl and now Charlotte, I find Charlotte more welcoming than Miami. Let me explain. In Miami, you can find haters that would tell you in your face that they don't like homosexuals, of course, they would use offensive words. Here in Charlotte, I still have to encounter a weird look or insult. I am openly gay, I go every where with my partner, but we both are pretty "masculine". I guess in Charlotte people are more educated or more tolerant regarding gays and lesbians, eventhough they might not approve of what I do in my bedroom, at least they don't really care much about it either. And that's a good thing. I don't need their approval, but I like respect.

Gays seem to be mixed in all over Charlotte. I would think the best place for a prodominately gay place would be Dilworth.

SEE, I'm not the only one wondering...

It's like the restuarant question I asked - is a "gay bookstore" one that is

1)owned by gays
2)only sells books on being gay
3)only sells to gays

The point is...by and large, Charlotte is a very nice place to live. We have a variety of people here and most seem to get along and coexist together just fine

I know this is coming from someone who hasnt been to White Rabbit but owned by gays is the only correct one you got

They sell books and magazines being gay , issues that is within the community, novels, fiction non, fiction, humor. Autobiographies that range from pop culture to political.

They also sell gay theme movies like you would see on the LOGO channel, music CD's, Jewerly, T shirts, undergear, cards, novelty items and some "add some spice" items.
They dont sell to only gays anyone welcome in the store.
clarify restaurant when we say gay restaurant we mean it gay owned or clientele tends to be gay doesnt mean they dont serve to the everyday public.
