Berea Kentucky is a little piece of Berkeley in Eastern KY. Very progressive vibe but also a Red White and Blue town. It's at the foot of the Appalachian mountains and good hiking is only a couple miles out of town

I would like to throw Johnson City, TN out there as well. Home of East Tennessee State University there is a fairly sizable gay population here. Also, we are just over the mountains from Asheville, NC; less than an hour away. More jobs here compared to Asheville and the cost of living is way lower.

Any small town in New England or New York. If you like snow and mountains, then Vermont.

OP - Not sure how you might feel about Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It's a bit of a hidden gem I never see mentioned on CD. It came to mind when you mentioned your affinity for mountains. It's a cute little town nestled in the Ozarks and has been gay-friendly for decades. It seems like it offers most of the features you are looking for. The only drawback I see is that once you find your mate, you are unlikely to be able to wed him in Arkansas any time soon.

I would also recommend New England. I think Portland, Maine would be fabulous for you. The metro area is about 15% the size of Seattle's metro area, and there are amazing mountains and scenery that are almost as beautiful as in Washington/Oregon, such as Acadia National Park and Baxter National Park. And the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Maine has a somewhat country vibe as well. Totally gay friendly, too.

Is there anything you are looking for in terms of housing, walkability, proximity to a bigger city, etc. I only ask because this thread in the NY forum came to mind in regards to the later posts: Gay couple looking to move to Ithaca
