Lexington is not very tolerant *if* you are Christian, white and/or Republican.

That's the way of the college town. I felt that way about Lexington for a while, but to those who don't like my traditional ways, that's their problem. You'll find that there is a very underrepresented conservative aspect to UK and downtown as well though. Most people are live-and-let live in Lex.

Lexington is a very very tolerant city in my opinion. Well educated in general, not a whole lot of racial bias - especially against middle eastern heritages. UK provides a lot of diversity, and therefore tolerance to diversity. Lexington has one of the largest homosexual communities in the country on a per capita basis, which is an indication of tolerance as well.

You aren't going to really be able to argue anywhere in Kentucky that is similar to SF, everywhere is different and it is impossible to classify everyone in a city into a box or stereotype. I can understand the SF reference as Lexington and Louisville are the two largest and really only significant metro centers and are comprised of rednecks, but also are in stark contrast to surrounding areas from a demographic standpoint - look at education, income, etc. In that sense, Lexington is an "island".

nc560,

If you will have a humble, yet friendly attitude and respect the area and other people, treating them the way you would like to be treated....you will have no problems in the Lexington area. It's all in your attitude. I think you will be fine in Lex.

nc560, what is your specialization in the Med field. Lexington has really good medical and helathcare and UK's med programs are really top tier. The med campus alone feels like a small city.
