I know the feeling. The other week I got carded by a security guard at the Mall of America to make sure I'm over 16. I'm 23 lol

Hi guys, I recently turned 21 years old and I am also trying to relocate to another city this fall.

I am looking for a city with a large metropolitan area (+2.5 million) that has an interesting LGBT scene (nightclubs, bars, lounges, organizations...).
For me it means that it should be easy to meet 21-24 years old and also easy to find a sizable quantity of nightclubs.

I love to party so I'd prefer larger mega-dance-clubs that can host many people rather than "bars". I also like when there's monthly special parties and lounge gatherings.

I highly considered these cities in the first place : Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle.

But I am open to other suggestions as well because I am really confused.

I would love a city that is young, nightlife/college oriented but I also consider the price of the rent (cost of living), the commute time, the crime rate, life opportunities (jobs), diversity (I'm white so I don't know if it matters anyway), the overall quality of the LGBT scene and maybe many other points I am missing.


To be honest I am more attracted to northern cities than southern ones (I am not a huge fan of LA and SF). I would be glad to get advices and also read the Pros and the Cons of the city of your choice.

Thank you.
It shouldn't matter, but I think that it does. Many of my gay friends who are not black speak of feeling left out/marginalized when they lived/traveled to the Bay Area.

1. Boston: Gay Scene is well diversified with non LGBT scene. No a good/bad thing. Just unique and seems to be very integrated. Fraction of SF / Bay prices. If youre into that, I know a lot of gay males are into the very good parades and LGBT pride clubs... Although greater Mass has ALOT of those (Ptown, Amherst, Salem, Northampton, Newburyport, etc) .. Boston's is more integrated and most gays in Boston seem very happy with it.
2. Philadelphia: Very good gay district. LGBT population well assimilated, accepted and thriving. Very good reception too.
3. Chicago: CHEAP, Great gay scene.. very liberal city as well.. Its just, Chicago.
4. Atlanta: Similar to Philadelphia, just bigger/better gay scene, but a little more secluded to Atlanta itself. I mean you can always utilize Hartsfield-Jackson to get out if bored?
5. DC: Like Philadelphia, just smaller gay scene... although metro is very accepting.

lol it's kinda common for ppl to consider twinks to be 18-25, but I've seen ppl who are in their upper 20s to be considered twinks too.
