Hi guys! Just a quick question here...I recently applied to a few jobs in downtown Louisville, but I'd rather live in Indiana so I can get in-state tuition at IU down the road. I've noticed that there are quite a few suburbs north of the river, but are any of these decent? I can't seem to find a good answer, though I see some of them have Meijers...and I can vaguely remember hearing good things about New Albany (though there are so many places named that, I'm probably thinking about one in Ohio or something).

I'm a 23 year old gay male, by the way, so I'd prefer an area that is generally gay friendly (or, at least, won't try to rub their nose in my business). It doesn't have to be the most liberal area, as I live in a military suburb now (south of Omaha) which is okay in the sense that people generally keep to themselves. What is, though, the general gay population/life like in Louisville?

Thanks!

Also meant to add- how are income taxes for those living in Indiana and working in Kentucky? Thanks!

If you are talking IU Southeast you can get in-state tuition if you live in Louisville also.

Kentucky Students (http://www.ius.edu/kystudents.cfm - broken link)

(If that included Hardin County, I would have definitely given IU Southeast consideration .)

Also there is a commuter-like tax for folks working in Louisville but not living in Louisville.

I would probably take a few classes at IU SE and eventually go to IUB.

My wife and I are looking in to moving to the Kentuckiana area. We are looking in to possibly living in Indiana and working in Kentucky, the problem is we have heard that if you work in one state and live in the other you pay state taxes to both states and if you are working in Louisville and live in Indiana your taxes are even higher due to the city taxes etc. that you are responsible for. Is this true ???? Any feedback would be appreciated?
