Very good, welcoming answers - OP, I hope that helps you - especially if you like downtown, Hillcrest, and the mid town but north of I-630 area, you'll do great. Jadbrosto gave ou some great links. I think Eureka is awsome for gays and straights alike, but if you are looking at employment in the central AR area, that's just going to make commuting WAY too long and involved, unless you have a job where you travel and don't particularly have to be in the greater LR area...if that's the case, go to ES and you won't be sorry AT ALL....fabulous, fabulous area.

I agree with Phil; any mid sized to large city today will have a gay community. Resort towns as well often have a high gay population as many tourist towns are also very artsy.

I would stay away from the very small towns or the rural areas, otherwise there should be few problems.

Default Gay in Omaha or Lincoln

As a whole, Nebraska is a conservative state but Omaha is a little more liberal and so is Lincoln. Omaha mainly because its a little more diverse than the rest of the state and Lincoln because of the college atmosphere. I am not gay but I've known a few gay people living in Omaha and there doesn't seem to be a problem. For the most part, I imagine its an okay place to live if you're gay but probably not great. Hope this helps.

Default ....

Omaha is a gay friendly city, and the gay resources are growing... for instance there is a non-profit sports league here just started and they have flag-football, softball, volleyball and I think they are going to start bowling.. I forget the website, but they have their own domain...

Omaha is an 'on the verge' city, Omaha scores well in many areas and is just an inch away from becoming a cultural mecca... there was even an article on this in some new york based magazine...

Tell them DTO

Wow, strange posts! I'm also a gay man who has posted similar questions to several cities. My partner and I are considering North Florida, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Tennessee to name a few! Is that so unusual to be open to numerous parts of the country? My partner has visited Jacksonville and loved it. I've yet to visit there. I've been to New Mexico and like the dry climate. So we are considering numerous options, that's why this site is appealing. You can get perspectives on many different cities from natives and long time residents before you make travel plans and spend a lot of money on a city you might not be interested in. That said, my biggest concern, having not been to Jacksonville is the humidity. When I looked at climate-zone they listed average daily humidity there in the mid 70's. So, is the heat and humidity a constant drain there, or is it only an issue in mid-summer? We're in Baltimore where the July-August heat, humidity and smog combined make it unbearable outside for much of the day during those months. Any feedback is appreciated. thank you

Are you set on a city? Smaller towns like Ocala are nice in the Northern part of FL. Humidity? Well, its still humid in the north and seems more intense, probably because of the buffer of the gulf breezes.

Default Ocala

I'm not familiar with Ocala. If we moved to north Florida the only area my job will transfer me too is Jacksonville. How far is Ocala from Jax? We were initially interested in Pensacola but, no job prospects there and too far to commute to Jacksonville, thanks

Its fairly far; 2 hours, so likely too far of a commute. I understand the employment problem, its been tough for me to find a job as well, unless I take a Bachelor level position. I don't have first hand experience with Jacksonville, but I have heard that it has some problems with crime.
