this the only time I would not reccomend going to VA (unless you are a homeless person, then you should stay in DC).

I'll stay on the right side of the river . I heard not too long ago that the city removed a huge portion of their gay area to build a baseball stadium. Is that true!?

That sucks if it is...but I'm not surprised

Not true. The baseball stadium is in a mostly industrial/blighted area of Anacostia in SE. The epicenter of gay life in DC is Dupont Circle in NW.

I wouldn't say it was a huge portion of the gay area was removed. There was a little outpost of gay clubs in the area near the Waterfront that used to be somewhat vibrant, but one by one have closed over the years for various issues and then what few gay establishments (a club or two, maybe a strip club and an adult video store/theatre) were shut down due to the stadium, but this wasn't the epicenter of DC's gay community. That remains Dupont Circle and increasingly, Logan Circle. DC is a very gay friendly city. And for the record, while there isn't the same huge concentration of gay businesses or people in Northern Virginia, the area is in general very tolerant of gays as well. The neighboring jurisdictions of Arlington and Alexandria voted over 70% AGAINST the gay marriage ban (as did Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William, all by smaller margins though), so don't feel like if you cross the Potomac, you're suddenly going to be bashed because that is simply not the case.

You might want to checkout the progressive university town (Cornell) of Ithaca, NY. The area is very gay friendly (when I lived there there were several out people on the city council).

Extremely beautiful area...lots of trees, waterfalls, etc., a walkable downtown and collegetown, lots of art events, etc.

We have visited every major city in Texas (we're from Austin), Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, along with Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco.

Chicago was by far the best out of these!

What do you all think? Remember, gay and hispanic . Don't necessarily need a latino population, we just don't want to encounter people with issues against Mexican Americans
who cares?
