Nah, I don't think most in NJ gave a hoot what McGreedy looked like or if he was gay, straight, or a category unto himself. I think he just used being gay as a convenient smokescreen to cover up his greed, graft, and corruption.

Generally large states area wise with low populations have a low gay population.
There are exceptions- Maine in New England is a fairly large state-but has a significant gay population. I cannot think of another off the top of my head.

Small towns in states like Texas have a low gay population. Most rural areas of the south, Midwest and great plains as well as the inter mountain west have low gay populations.

Areas with a large Christian fundamentalist population also tend to have smaller gay communities.

Couldn't be more true...

Default Low Gay Numbers

Neither Amboy nor Ludlow, both in California, can possibly have any significant gay population. Neither one has a decent restaurant..

I didn't get a chance to read the whole thread so I'm not sure if anyone has said what I'm about to say.

Big cities don't mean a larger percentage of homosexuals. It's just a place where homosexuals can be more free and be themselves, as most cities are liberal, progressive and don't really care about sexual orientation.

There are still many gays in small town TX, AL, TN, WV, MS and KS. Only difference is these gays are not comfortable to be 'out of the closet' in their communities with closed-minded ideas.

How unfortunate.

Count Oklahoma out because Oklahoma City has two all gay hotels that are the biggest gay hotels in the USA.

I think anyone NOT wanting to live around GAY people should move to the moon...

I hope that before long there will be a nice campy gay couple in every street, every neighborhood to raise the propery values of the place...

Their here, their q-ueer, get used to it !!

Hello my name is Nicky and I live here in Rockdale County and we only have one city and that is Conyers. I have lived here for 15 yr's & we have always had a low gay couples rate. Come and visit, check it out yourself!!!!!!!
Good Luck,
Nicky in Conyers
But according to City Data Conyers, GA .3% of housholds are lesbian while .2% of households are gay males. This is a common figure in most small towns.

This is actually a good point I had not considered. But really it is true - the areas where the gays live more freely are generally speaking a heck of a lot nicer then the places where the homophobes thrive. Curious...
