I am a 42 yr single gay man that keeps my sexual orientaion to myself. I have lived in Arizona for the past 17 years and looking for a change. I have narrowed my decisions to 3 locations. All of these places have a lot to do and see there. On top of that they have a very low cost of living. I am looking for a city that I can be myself and have some fun along the way.

Thanks,
Geog 101

Of the 3, I would pick Pittsburgh. There are other midwestern cities that would fit your criteria. Saint Louis for one.

Default Raised in San Antonio

Don't go there.
Pittsburgh is the best choice out of these three.

Louisville is very nice. It has some great older neighborhoods close to downtown that are very walkable and charming. Check out the Highlands, Clifton, St. Matthews areas. There are lots of great parks, good restaurants and a solid art scene for a city of its size. I have lots of family and friends that live there and they all love it, and I always enjoy visiting.

I also like Pittsburgh, and you can certainly share your sexual orientation with many people there.

I would recommend them in reverse of the order you gave them in. Pittsburgh is a progressive city with a great blue-collar edge. It is convenient to other areas around it, and has quickly shed its rust-belt past.
Louisville is a more moderately sized city. It has a artsy urban core justaposed with a hint of Southernness.
San Antonio is in a world of its own. It is geographically isolated, and has grown alot in past decades. It has a great downtown area, which is usually precluded by growth in most other cities. It is liberal for Texas.
Good luck.
