just look at the voting results for cities concerning the gay marriage ban. If a city didn't vote at least 66% against the ban, then it is not gay-friendly IMO. Few cities are

Raleigh is, I'm gay and lived in the area for 7 years. St Louis and Kansas City both have large visible gay communities.

So gay-friendly cities include: San Francisco and Santa Cruz in California, Alexandria and Arlington in Virginia (Charlottesville voted against it by one of the highest margins I saw, but might be too small to count as a city), and Madison in Wisconsin.

In Colorado they had votes in 2006 about banning same-sex marriage and allowing some kind of union. Towns that apparently went over 66% for the pro-gay position in both votes included.

Aspen, Colorado - In Pitkin
Telluride, Colorado - In San Miguel

Boulder, Colorado nearly makes it, but was just 65% against same-sex marriage.

Washington states "anything except marriage" Referendum 71, that expanded recognition of same-sex relationships, was supported by over 66% in King county the home of Seattle.

November 3, 2009 General - Measures - Statewide, Referendum Measure 71 concerning rights and responsibilities of state-registered domestic partners - Results By County (http://vote.wa.gov/Elections/WEI/ResultsByCounty.aspx?ElectionID=32&RaceID=102369&C ountyCode=%20&JurisdictionTypeID=-2&RaceTypeCode=M&ViewMode=Results - broken link)

In most states that have same-sex marriage it was not voted in, actually I don't think SSM ever won a popular vote not even in Maine, so this ends up excluding cities that actually allow it.

Not sure what makes you say that. Both Baltimore (Mt. Vernon) and Philadelphia (Washington West) have pretty thriving gay communities.

Columbus, Ohio is a midwestern GAY MECCA, having an extremely large and visible GAY COMMUNITY.
The annual GAY PRIDE FESTIVAL in Columbus will typically attract around 200,000 attendees ... compared to around 2,500 to 4,000 in nearby Cleveland. Columbus boasts the second largest gay community in the midwest after Chicago.

Isn't that sweet^^ Somebody who self proclaims as a "Crip" (primarily black gang) who you would think fully knows the hurtful effects of bigotry and hatred, paying the favor forward to gays.

Yes, I was thinking the same exact thing ... completely asinine to make such an unwelcomed statement.


Gay people are living beings, too ... "WE" HURT, WE PAY TAXES THE SAME AS ANYBODY ELSE, WE'RE HOMEOWNERS, WE CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUCCESS OF OUR CITIES AND COMMUNITIES ... WE'RE GOOD NEIGHBORS, AND ... WE'RE "NOTTTTTTTTTTTTT" GOING TO CONTEND ANYMORE WITH INTOLERANCE, HATRED, BIGOTRY AND THE LIKE ...
WE'RE GODS CHILDREN AND WE STAND TALL "TOGETHER" !!!
