Hey,

I'm trying to think of good cities with lots of gay young professionals where I could move after graduating. I am currently in the Triangle region of NC. I like it here but I would ideally want to be somewhere with more gay, young people. So I was thinking somewhere the size of the Triangle or bigger.

I know ATL and DC are good places, but I am not huge fans of either. Same with NY and LA. So far I've thought of Denver, Portland, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, and maybe Minneapolis.

Any other suggestions and/or insight would be great. Thanks!

How about Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Second highest percentage of gay residents in the United States, and many are high income professionals living in cool loft style apartments under the Florida sun. Boston can potentially be cool too,as would Chicago.I have never been to Seattle or Portland so I can not speak for that.

providence, RI would be an awesome fit for you. if you're ever looking at boston, stop by providence first and you might be surprised. as far as cities go, providence is basically the epitome of "young gay professionals".

I live in Denver. We have a large gay population here, and quite a few who hold professional jobs. In my office, there are three other gay people in their 20s. I like Denver, it's a good place for young gay people. I do however, plan on moving next summer- perhaps Chicago, just for a change.

If you do not mind the rain, you would love Portland. My partner and I have lived here for several years now. It is a really easy place to live if you are young and gay.
