Wolfdog and Braindead: Not many cities can compare with Portland in terms of gay friendliness. Haha Corvallis and Eugene both have a much smaller-mind attitude than Portland. When I visited Reno, I really liked the "you do what you want, I do what I want" kind of attitude.
I was referring to the areas around the campuses, which is where I assumed you would reside.

For a city our size we are pretty gay-friendly. I haven't heard of a single gay bashing incident here the 15 years I've lived here while there have been a few racist incidents. We live close to the Bay so get a lot of gay-friendly culture from there. We have an annual PRIDE festival that I attend and nobody protests or anything. No big Christian fundamentalist political groups here. I have no frickin idea why we have an anti-gay marriage law here when we legalize medical pot, gambling, and prostitution.

We have more and more bike lanes but S Virginia Street still sucks and you will die. We passed a new law that says you have to give 3 feet when passing a bicyclist but nobody here has heard of the law. Be careful out there and ride down smaller streets.

I had a friend at UNR who said the cafeteria sucks and he gained 10 pounds on pizza and other junk food there.

Finally, it rains in Corvallis and Eugene and hardly ever rains here. Oregonicians are all hipster and foodies and think they're too cool. Renoites know we're not cool and we only act hipster while still driving Hummers, not recycling, eating fast food, and buying new clothes from child labor factories in Indonesia.

Highlighted Is Indeed Very true about Oregon! That's also true of Marin County, Washington State, Santa Cruz, Santa Fe, NM, etc. etc. these places also have high income taxes and wish to regulate every chunk of PRIVATE property right down to the width of your front yard and sidewalk. if you're an architect, not easy places to practice.

Glad to hear THIS about RENO ! thanks
