Pittsburgh is regionally lost. West Virginia is too. It is neither Midwestern or Eastern. I actually think NE Ohio, Northern and Panhandle West Virginia and Western Penna. forms a micro-region --West Ohpenna.

Of the three, Pittsburgh. However, you might keep looking a bit. At least, take a trip there and stay for a week (some advice I read on another thread). It has not entirely shed its rustbelt image. "Progressive" is not a word I would use to describe Pittsburgh. Go read the Pittsburgh forum.

Louisville gets my vote. Its cheap, has moderate weather, and is very progressive and gay friendly in the urban core. Check out the Highlands, Old Louisville, Crescent Hill, Clifton, and St Matthews. If you are interested in networking with the local gay community, here is a resource to get started. Louisville is also safer and just cleaner and nicer in my opinion, especially compared to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is a cool city though. I am not impressed with San Antonio at all:

G3 Illustrated - It's more than a magazine... it's a movement!

I have been to Louisville and it seemed like a decent city. Never been to Pittsburgh so I can't say much about the place. As far as job growth, and a booming economy, San Antonio is the leader of the three. It is one of the fastest growing in the country and has better weather. Today it was cool and in the low 70's, but gets cooler at night. San Antonio is a liberal city for the most part, the Chief of Police(Former Minneapolis Chief) was the MC of San Antonio gay pride 2007. The Gayhoods would be concentrated around these areas, Southtown, Monte Vista, Olmos Park, Alamo Heights and the Broadway corridor.

You cant base your decision on being gay they all tie. San Antonio is very liberal for the south (which i dis-like a bit). San Antonio weather is alot nicer than the others IMO. If you lived in southern Arizona than i think you would agree. San Antonio is the cheapest and has the most to do unless you are into mayor league sports. All this is based o San Antonio vs Pittsburgh never saw a reason to stop in Louisville. But go visit all three like the previous poster. Seem like there is more economic opportunity in San Antonio.

Default Anywhere but San Antonio...

My family still lives in San Antonio. I only go there because I have to.
It has zero culture. It's also in Texas ! Don't do it ! Austin is more liberal than San Antonio and that is only by Texas standards...now drive around the
country towns around these places and see what those standards are...
trust me it's pretty pathetic. I travel all over the world and I sincerely believe
that Texas has the most mean spirited people I've ever been around.
If you have any desire to go here...do yourself a favor and spend a few days or weeks there first and you'll see exactly what I mean. Louisville or Pittsburgh would be far better choices than San Antonio.

Zero culture? Further from the truth, but it is your opinion. I've have been to many places and have to disagree with the unfriendliness comment. Austin has it's culture, certainly no more than San Antonio. A city that is 300 years old, clearly has it's own unique culture, this is the reason it is a popular destination, and these other two cities are not.

Let's keep the three cities mentioned and not bring in Austin into the discussion.

I know little about Louisville, and don't care to know about Pittsburgh, so I would choose San Antonio. Live downtown. It's dense, active, romantic, old, and beautiful.
