Villa Jene Apartments: 2190 West Burnside Street in Portland is a historic landmark (on the National Registry) and happens to be a very gay friendly building...in the gay friendly historic Alphabet District. Even accepts large breed pets!

Portland is gay friendly for sure. There are some people that may not be but you'll find that everywhere. As a whole Portland is gay friendly.

The Pearl district is probably the trendiest area, with lofts, restaurants, bars, etc. Really, all neighborhoods in Portland have gay people. You wouldn't feel out of place in any of them. Northwest, Irvington, Laurelhurst, Mt. Tabor, Sellwood, Hawthorne, Belmont...Portland is a nice place...if this is where you want to be, don't think for a second that you won't be welcome.
Good Luck!
Well thats pretty much me.. I talked with some homosexuals in the past and they only go the way they go due to circumstances.. you are not born gay. Its also possible that what some kids consume growing up could have things in it to make them gay too, but you're not born that way.

All neighborhoods in Portland do not have gay people.. hate to say. In fact I see very little of it here even wandering into these "progressive" areas. Theres a place downtown I saw but I got news for you, St Petersburg FL/Tampa is more gay than it is here especially if you're talking about the Ru Paul
outwardly types or Perez Hilton types, gotta go to
SF,
Atlanta or L.A and small sentiments of it are in Tampa area too.

If anyone here is close to gay in Portland, my guess is people could be bi and they post on craigslist but you wouldn't know in person kinda like those mountain men types who live in the area but don't really disclose or because they come off so manly, nobody would think they are.


Portland could be more like this than an OUTWARD homosexual population like say the other cities I mentioned.

High school kids are not supposed to be out past midnight even on non-school nights, yet there are several underage clubs open past midnight. Technically, just about every one of them is in violation of curfew law, but I don't see the cops doing anything about [the curfew law]
Thats why transplants like me need to be here.. people who seen the results of what being tolerant to bad things can do and are more than happy to kick this place back into shape with an injection of intolerance. I can be a real hard ass with some things, but it makes the environment better is what I say.. Order leads to more freedom.. tolerance to anything at all leads to chaos. Homelessness should never be enabled, homosexuality shouldn't, excessive tattoos shouldn't, interracial marriages shouldn't, flash mobs looting stores shouldn't, NAMBLA I see is trying to get rights too.. is this normal??? and Sam Adams is right on board with them too!

I believe in legalizing all and any drugs though. Maybe we won't have so many junkies if all drugs were legal so in this respect, I am liberal. I think kids need to see it in the stores and see the results and this way they can determine if its a good choice to use or not.

Default Homosexuals?

So Portland is quite a bit more accepting of it than the suburban areas.

A few of my customers were homosexuals, but I still did work for them, and we maintained out own political space. Never really crossed moral swords with any of them in the realm of commerce.
Are you freaking kidding me? You start off you comment with...."I'm opposed to the homosexual lifestyle............etc"............

And, who in the hell says "homosexual" anymore?

I find all of this very offensive..........No matter how hard you are trying.

Check the date - he said it almost six years ago. Not that it's a great statement, but a lot of people have learned and changed in the past six years if opinion polls are to believed. No need to attack someone for old opinions.
