I'm no expert on the "gay scene" in Albuquerque, but there seems to be a shyteload of lesbians in this town (in my neighborhood, at least).

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

If you read the Weekly Alibi (free news weekly) you may come under the notion that nearly everyone in Albuquerque is gay or bi or transgender. OK so that's a bit of hyperbole but there seems to be a very active gay scene here and a lot of friendliness towards gayness.

Then again I live in the University/Nob Hill area (which if you are gay is probably where you want to live).

My partner and I have lived in Montclair for twelve and a half years and it's completely gay-friendly. The Montclair community as a whole is very diverse and I can almost guarantee you would feel 100% comfortable here. Also, I agree with previous posters who've said that New Jersey as a whole is a refreshingly progressive state. Good luck and welcome!

West Orange is a great town. Many, many gay couples with kids here. It is close to Montclair and Maplewood so great restaurants and an easy commute into New York.

teaching Sex Ed and tolerance would be that. Although alot here are willing to tolerate it a little. Most are not. This new law and the life style in general has a long way to go in NH. It is unfortunate but true. The Dem's in charge don't seem to realize in time it would have come anyway. So they pushed it and passed it and now alot here are pissed about it. I have actually seen signs on the side of the road that say We are not VT go home. Intolerance is strong, when forced to accept something before a state is truly ready. I actually saw 1 bumber sticker/magnet that said Gay's belong in Mass not NH, so go home. I myself openly admitted don't agree with it, but that don't mean Gay's are bad people. I am sure I do alot that people don't agree with. Life goes on.

NH doesn't have a sex ed class in schools, or did I misunderstand the first sentence? I don't have kids in school, so I have no idea on the curriculum up here........

Okay - I obviously misunderstood! Perhaps one day everyone will be more tolerant of "alternative lifestyles" so the question the original poster asked will not be necessary when contemplating a move......

Sanfranmike...Statistics certainly don't tell the whole story, but you may want to check out the hate crimes stats by state at statemaster.com. It shows New Hampshire 3rd highest per capita for sexual orientation-related hate crimes.

We moved to Bennington 1 1/2 years ago. Have found the area to be very gay friendly and have met at least 10 other gay couples since we moved here.
