In addition to many cities mentioned on this thread, such as Austin, New Orleans, Miami, and Atlanta, I'd alo add Dallas and Houston as well.

What about Mobile, Alabama? I've surprisingly heard they're quite accepting.

It doesn't get much more liberal in the south than Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC.

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.
Yep. If I were you I'd wait until June and see how this turns out before falling in love with someplace that eventually might not recognize yr marriage, right to adopt, rights of inheritance and hospital visitation, etc.

Obviously I'd also look toward a place where population is growing and there are many new families, perhaps the Houston area--if you can stand the heat and humidity. I would cross NC off my list though. The Republicans are wrecking the educational system in that state and many underpaid teachers and educators are leaving for greener pastures elsewhere if they can.

I think the Raleigh-Durham area would fit the bill.

Other liberal cities include Miami, Austin, and New Orleans... but they aren't in liberal states (North Carolina isn't either I suppose...)

The most racist places in America, according to Google - The Washington Post

Most of the cities listed are simply branded as liberal. They aren't and they are situated in socially backward states (by most measures).

Richmond, Norfolk/Virginia Beach and NoVa are the most solidly tolerant places in the South.

LGBT issues are important but as a member of that community income inequality, environmental issues and racism are equally important. See the map in the link above. It isn't some outlier. Every map measuring these types of things looks the same.

Atlanta inside 285 is about as liberal as you can get in the South. However, Durham and Chapel Hill/Carrboro certainly come close. But keep in mind, this is southern liberal. This isn't Portland or San Francisco liberal, not even close.

It's more common-sense liberal...that's the way I like it. Some liberal idea are way over the top for me - I'm very liberal but I don't support every liberal cause.
