Hello everyone,
I heard a lot of different opinions about the Rochester.
Can anyone tell me if it is a gay friendly city? I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

It is very accepting. Rochester is good with diversity.

There are many neighborhoods in the city that are known to be "gay friendly" and have large gay populations; namely the upper monroe neighborhood, park avenue, and especially Neighborhood of the Arts.

Definitely gay-friendly. Huge gay community downtown due to Eastman School of Music (not to be stereotypical, but it's true. I go to UofR.)

I would also add Maplewood/Seneca Pkwy to that list.... or so I have been told by a close gay realtor friend of mine. I would agree to the diveristy and accepting nature of ROC.... gay family and friends... several live near Park Ave area and are quite happy there.

I think it had more gay activities in the mid 90's when the Liberty Pole area (don't laugh, I'm serious) had successful, openly gay businesses. But yes, Rochester is gay friendly.

Thank you everybody.
I really appreciate all your information. I am looking forward to visit Rochester in near future.
Also, would you know which area is better to rent/buy an apartment?
Thanks again.

I would go Park Ave area... From Monroe Ave to Culver over to University Up to Alexander.... back over to Monroe.... Keep it in that area..... and you can add that section of Park that crosses Culver as well..... Get a map of Rochester and you will see..... I would try and stick between Park and East or as close to it as I could...
