And you really can't beat the metroparks for hiking,horseback riding, cruising, tobaganing, swimming, etc. It really is a gem for clevelanders. When you are in Columbus, you really should spend a couple of summer days on lake Erie on your way home.

I'm just saying. With the 3 gay friends you already have in cleveland , you won't have to worry about finding help moving into your house or apt.. Also they can take you places to meet other gay guys , kind of help you break the ice so you don't have to go stag everywhere.

Yeah I know. But if Columbus has the better job opportunity and general appeal to me, then why should I go for Cleveland instead? I mean, making friends in a gay mecca isn't that hard. Columbus has about 6 times the gay population of where I live now. And that's only counting guys near my age.

I didn't know that cbus was considered a "gay mecca" . maybe that's the new/missing identity cbus has been looking for! I can see it now in my crystal ball.. Its fall, and its all scarlet and grey (jerseys and designer clothes) and the buckeyes take the field! And now half of cbus is cheering "go bucks", and the " gay mecca" part of cbus is cheering " go butts"!

Whether or not "mecca" is accurate or not, it's long been known that Columbus has a sizeable gay population. Much higher than Cleveland or Cincinnati and higher than just about any city in the Midwest. In fact, it's a top 20 in the country from what I've seen.

Yeah, just based on looking at dating profiles on online websites, Columbus has a huge gay population for a metro of 2 million. It rivals many larger metros. And based on that, it has about 6 times the gay population of where I live now (Fairfield County, CT). Based on that also, Columbus has about double the gay population of Cleveland, despite being similarly sized metros.
