I lived in Philly for many years and would guess you're looking for something not only safer but maybe less congested and with better work opportunity (versus having to commute to/from the suburbs for work like many in Philly have to do). As being LGBT myself I have a pretty good handle on what you're looking for. The Northeast US is pretty much off your list given your budget and would recommend checking out Durham/Chapel Hill/Carrboro NC which is very LGBT-friendly and historically has had a higher proportion of lesbians versus gay men. It's pretty safe to very safe overall and offers an excellent quality of life with plenty of job opportunity and would highly recommend it as someone who lived in that area for many years. I know there's probably a tendency to wonder about NC in general given the news of late but can assure you the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro area rivals any other liberal/LGBT friendly city in the country in terms of livability and inclusiveness.

You could still get very safe though not luxury for that price in Louisville. Like many states we currently have a governor that is kind of mental but on the ground level there isn't much homophobia.

You'd have a lot of suburban options

I would recommend Sacramento or Portland, OR if the west coast interests you. Both cities have a large LGBT community in safe areas, and rent is a bargain compared to places like SF and Seattle, although you would have to increase your budget to the high end to find a small apartment.
