Not long after moving here last year i went to the gay pride parade in the park ave area
and was surprised at the turn out apparently its second in ny only to new york city
even the chief of police and some churches were in the parade.

If you like to be close to the city the southeast area is were I live and so far its very nice
the cityofrochester.org website has lots of information, maps, housing studies I checked out before buying last year and I refer people to them in my business(realestate) now.

If your going to pay close to a thousand in rent its worth exploring buying.
For renting check rentrochester.com or newdigs.com(might not be up yet)
even craigslist.com

all the best

you may wish to consider the southwedge area (14620 zip code, especially streets between Mount Hope and South Clinton). Very trendy, hip, cool, accepting area that is cheaper than Park Ave area.

I think Rochester is generally a very liberal city, similar to NYC. I also think it depends on who you're talking to though. There are some people here that are homophobic, sure, but generally we have a typical liberal NY mentality.

don't think Rochester is in any way similar to NYC, and I mean that in a very nice way.

NYC liberalism can be over the top and negative, plus a little "limousine liberal"-esque, whereas Rochester people tend to know what they're talking about.

My husband and i are looking for a place to move to where we can start over in an area that is accepting and safe. We are currently living in Panama City Beach Florida and desparetly need to move somewhere that is not filled with hate, judgemental rednecks,and literally NO gay community. We have been togather for 18 years, are in our 40's and want to live where being gay isn't an issue. Is Rochester somewhere we may consider. Anyone have any info on where a good place to live is? It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help. We have been looking for a place for a year or so now.

As a gay man, I'd recommend anywhere in the Rochester area to you. If you want to live in the city, any of the southeast neighborhoods would be good. Plus Corn Hill, which has a great neighborhood association and lots of gay households.

You've never heard of hate crimes here? Huh? It wasn't that long ago that a few gay men were being harassed at a bar, reported it to the police, and were then arrested themselves. And that was in the city. The suburbs are far more conservative.
