LOL! Political affiliation won't change the outcome of marriage reform legislation. Just look at California.

it's not political affiliation, its religious affiliation that took it away, although the more religious someone is the more republican they tend to be.

the vote came out to 52% vs. 48% in California, now imagine if that same vote took place in Georgia, do you really think it would be anywhere near even?

Lol, yes I try to avoid city vs city. I like some of the threads, but the redundancy is enough to make me want to jump off a bridge.

How many ny vs chi vs atl vs houston vs la do we need? I think the common consensus has been answered 2 million posts ago.

people love NY and CHI.
people love to bash on ATL and Houston
and LA falls somewhere in the middle?

Yeah, and there's a lot of good discussion going on. For some reason beyond me you continue to post in this thread you hate so much. Just leave and don't read into it anymore. You aren't adding anything, so really we wouldn't mind if you left.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. The fastest growing cities are bashed the most while southerners are portrayed as rednecks. bla bla. And it's been the same for the 3 years I've been reading.

The first sentence could be translated in more than one way. Drugs come to mind. Also a black guy chasing after a white guy came to mind too but my final answer is: "Those caucasians in Atlanta are outnumbered by us black folks." White guys in Atlanta talk about Miami and New York a lot.

The Indigo Girls who are lesbians did indeed get their start in Atlanta. Although I think they're from Athens but I could be wrong. White gay guys are more likely to like a lot of house music versus hip hop.

I'm afraid Ty is inaccurate about gay Atlanta being 99% black. Although if he doesn't live in Atlanta but just goes to party it would be very easy to party all weekend at black gay clubs and not see any white guys. So that would be where the statement came from.
Ty said your translation was fairly accurate. "Snow queens" are what black gay people call white gay guys. They don't like the white gay guy attitude so they have their own clubs in most cities.

So apparently this isn't a situation unique to Atlanta but is more evident because (according to Ty) the gay scene there is 99% African-American. (yes, we know he's exaggerating)

Who said it would? If marriage equality can't stay law in California, no one is dumb enough to think it would even have a chance to pass in Georgia.

That has nothing to do with the question at hand in this thread though. I'm sure you are very aware that the environment for gays in Atlanta is far better than it is outside in Georgia and for that matter most states and cities.

For the record, I'm pretty sure Chicago and Atlanta are about equal on the gay friendly scale. Though I've never been Chicago, I've had friends who are gay (I'm not myself) who've lived in both places and they haven't said one place is better than the other. And that conversation has come up before.
