Hello all, hoping you could find a good fitting place for me.

I'm 21, live in Omaha now, gay black male, really enjoy arts and theatre.

I would love to live somewhere with a good restaurant scene and a (preferably large) gay community.

I work as a hair dresser and already have job hook-ups in either.

I love diversity, and being around people of different cultures and ethnicities. I was thinking about a downtown apartment/loft either in Denver (like the LoDo area) or Holyoke (probably on Gordon Street, depending on pricing).

So, what do you think? Denver or Holyoke?

You are trolling, right?
"Gay black male".
Denver or Holyoke, Colorado - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ?

I am sure that you will love Holyoke.
(Sarcasm is my fortť).

I'm not really sure what 'trolling' is,
But I do think Holyoke is a rather small place. I was just hoping to get a few opinions on the matter; as I figured Denveronians would have an idea about the state as well as the city of Denver.

I'm a man, black and gay...?? why the quotes??

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Sharing a few of the OP's same traits I'd feel much more comfortable in Holyoke than LoDo. Especially on a Saturday night...

None of these exist in a "city" that "As of the census of 2000, there were 2,261 people".

Having grown up in northeastern Colorado and as a former resident of the Denver area for 20 years I scratch my head as to how the H3ll you came up with Holyoke?!?!?!?!?

Perhaps I could direct you to even a smaller enclave than Holyoke like Ovid or Joes.

This is a joke right?

Putting aside all snarkism, sarcasm, and incredulity regarding the OPs "apples and oranges" comparison of the two locales, I'd truly be interested in hearing more from jamesdenver. Might just learn something new about a corner of the state I have spent little time in...
