Damn glad I live in the San Francisco of the south. I am a 55 year old Lawyer in Atlanta. Good ole boys like you, are worse than what any gay person could flaunt in front of your sensitive eyes.

Chitown, my family, both sides, are from the southeastern part of the state from fayetteville down to whiteville but i spent some time growing up in Franklin County 30min outside Raleigh. I can tell you unequivocally that the gay sickness wont be tolerated in Raleigh especially if it is flaunted in public. Folks dont want their children seeing that crap

Wow. Moderator cut: off topic/personal I would also bet that a vast majority of parents would rather have their kids witness two humans in love with one another versus seething hate. Lastly, I lived in Raleigh-Durham for several years and never once felt unwelcome as an out gay male. Jesse Helms and his ilk are slowly dying off, and North Carolina voted "blue" for the first time in a presidential election in 2008. It would seem your sickness is not being tolerated and not welcome to be flaunted in public.

The good ol boy is certainly a failing institution. Good ol boys used to say immigrants and minorities weren't welcome and most agreed. Oh how the times have changed.

JAGOB needs to get out of rural North Carolina and see 2010, or least 1985.

OP Gay friendly cities is subjective. There will be some that are more so than others. I know I found some in Central Florida, smaller cities that are very gay unfriendly. You would think in Fla with decades of people moving in, that it would be the most open place. Its not at least in Central Fla

. You would need to stick to a city like Atlanta and some close in suburbs. Even there you could run into people that could make you feel unwelcome. The cities and Metro's in Southeast Florida might work for you, and you would need to visit to see how any of these places pan out for you.

As long as you make some contacts that hopefully become friends, and your welcome where you work you can make it work. At that point then gay friendly can be anywhere for you. Just remember visiting and living in a place are very different experiences. So plan accordingly and always try to picture your visits, as what life would be like for you living there. Never depend on doing touristy things, as a way to judge whether a place is right or wrong for you. I think you will find your place. Just take your time in your search.
