DC is nothing more then a district so that means location in VA or MD, which imo, isn't truly southern. I hope this doesn't offend.
I sugesst a song from the 70s called "there but for the Grace of God" which was a disco song and the lyrics went "no blacks (thugs) no Jews and no Gays.

Try Utah!

I'm kidding but seriously people are going to be exposed to all sorts of lifestyles and TV and the internet doesn't make you immune. Do you really want to isolate your future kids from the reality of the world? Take a job which will pay you well, give you benefits and take care of your life. Things will sort themselves out.

I can't speak for the OP, but if she thinks there are no gay folks in the cities she's considering, she'd be quite naive. But suffice it to say that the gay populations in the cities she's looking at aren't nearly as big as that in Atlanta because the cities themselves are smaller.
so basically back to what I was saying. I recommend she live anywhere else besides a medium-large size city. Any city will have a gay community.

I'm gonna move to Seattle because there are no black people (A small percentage) and I don't want my future family to be raised around their culture. (I'm KIDDING)

no offense to you but I have no tolerance for "blinded" "closeted" ignorance. I believe we can only learn by being called out on our own ignorance and mistakes or we'll go on thinking what we do and say is right.

Whatever City she lives in, the percentage of the gay population will somewhat be similar give or take a percentage or two. She will be exposed to it just as much as in Atlanta because there will be a smaller area/population to cover.

As LovinDecatur said, I just find it easier to refrain from making judgment calls on a person's preference when it comes to a place to live. Now if they resort to name-calling or giving misleading/inaccurate information, that's something else entirely and I confront that. Otherwise, let them live where they want.

I totally disagree. Atlanta has one of the highest gay populations in the nation and is known as a magnet for gay African Americans in particular, so even on a per capita basis, there will be much less exposure to *that particular segment of the gay population that she explicitly expressed discomfort with* in smaller cities she's considering like Charlotte and Raleigh.
