As a masculine gay man and registered Republican, I would start by looking into cities / counties / metropolitan areas with high rates of membership in the local Log Cabin Republicans chapter. In my experience, gay Republicans trend masculine.

Cities seem to develop a certain expectation; a model that represents what is deemed ‘hot’ in said city. Doesn’t necessarily mean everyone there fits the description, but sort of serves as a blueprint for success. And the farther you sway from that model, the more socially invisible you’ll find yourself feeling.

I think the Atlanta ‘model’ is indeed masculine and muscular/fit, but agree the contents of the bag itself are quite mixed regardless of the packaging.

Gay men don't bounce out of the womb with effeminate characteristics in most cases (perhaps the few are most visible) and don't gain those characteristics until socialization occurs with other gay men. Like most human traits it's societal influence and not biological.
I've seen it happen both ways. I've definitely witnessed the guys that over dramatize femininity from the sociological perspective you're referring to. However I was responding to a post suggesting that masculine gay men are by nature in a place of oppression or attempting to conceal their sexuality which I don't agree with either.
