Maybe, but they aren't as liberal as the other two. I wouldn't compare Miami and Atlanta to Portlands or LA's politics, but the other two, yeah, I would.

Most larger cities are fairly liberal...and there are plenty of smaller cities in the South that are liberal as well. College towns in general and places like Asheville or Durham NC are known to be pretty liberal.

I have seen some similar post but they are old and pre same sex marriage legalization. Any suggestions of cities or areas?
Just curious, how did you guys decide who is the "wife"?

Coin toss? Rock, Paper, Scissors? What?

No one has ever heard that one before...way to be smart and original!

They are obviously both women and both can be referred to as "wife" if they wish. Why would it matter to you anyway? Maybe you can start a movement to "protect" the words husband and wife.

Being gay and having lived in a few places here in the Southeast (along with travel and research of new places to live) can tell you the following would be your best bets...my top picks in bold based on LGBT quality of life factors like anti-hate vibe and visibility of the gay community.

Carrboro NC
Chapel Hill NC
Asheville NC
Durham NC

Boone NC
Winston Salem NC
Columbia SC
St Petersburg FL
Tampa FL
Jacksonville FL
Orlando FL
Lake Worth FL
Wilton Manors FL
Ft Lauderdale FL

Why not the Atlanta area? That's probably the best pick, although I'd advise to stay away if you're not interested in larger cities. Look into Atlanta inside 285, the outer suburbs will be more conservative the further you venture out.

Depending on the decision resulting from today's arguments at the US Supreme Court, your marriage may be recognized in all 50 states later this year. I believe the current count is 36. The current case concerns TN & KY in the south.

As for the most liberal cities in the South, I echo what some other posters have said. If you are looking at smaller places then Asheville, NC is a fine choice.

For bigger cities New Orleans and then Austin are very liberal. A lot of New Orleans has a very much "anything goes" vibe.

For very big cities, Atlanta and Miami.
