Hi Y'all,
My partner is exploring a job option in Greensboro - any advice on the best areas to look for a house for two middle-aged lesbians? Just wondering where the older, professional, more sedate couples gravitate towards in a neighborhood...would appreciate any advice.
Thanks.

with the exception of a rare incident on the part of some inbred teenager, I have not seen much in the way of gay bashing. By in large, GSO is an educated community, hate crimes are much more frequently committed by the woefully undereducated. I worked bars for several years and, far and away, most of the disputes had nothing to do with anyone's sexual orientation, or ethnic background.

I'd check out Sunset Hills, Lindley Park or Westerwood. Lake Daniel, and the bohemian section of Fisher Park may fit the bill, too.

Greensboro is a very gay friendly city especially downtown and in the neighborhoods mentioned in the above post. Tonight is Drag Queen Bingo in the downtown Regency / Empire Rooms.

Smile Gay friendly neighborhood in Greensboro

I can't think of any better place than College Hill. S. Mendenhall St. is really great. It's very interesting, with many turn of the century homes and a very diverse and open-minded population. It's very friendly and old-fashioned in that people walk the neighborhood and sit out on their front porches.

oh there are so many- Lindley Park, Sunset Hills, Fisher Park, Aycock, College Hill. I have lots of gay friends who live all over. Many of the older neighborhoods have gay populations. It's a good town to be gay in, as a client once told me.
Lindley Park and Sunset Hills revolve around the intersection of Walker and Elam where there are restaurants, bars, Bestway Grocery store, etc. and many gay folks live in our little neighborhood. There's a lesbian couple two doors down from us who have a little girl. It's nice.
Good luck!

I am not from NC but in doing some of my own research on relocating to the triad area, this link came up on google. WELCOME: Gay Triad North Carolina Page! GLBT Resources & More! I wonder if it would be helpful to you. I just thought I would put that out there.

Having lived in Sunset Hills and having had friends in Fisher Park -- those are great places as well! Aycock neighborhood is a neat little place, but I'm not sure how safe/stable it is anymore. We have friends that live in that neighborhood, and the houses and neighbors are great -- but sometimes you get a little "spillover" from some of the other closer neighborhoods.

Can you or anyone offer any insight now, 7 years later?

You might contact someone at Greensboro Pride for resources. There is not currently an LGBT Center in GSO but I believe they are in the process of putting one together. Also the Guilford Green Foundation is a big nonprofit serving the community....just another place to get a referral, maybe. Ask for gay realtors?
