If you don't mind heat and humidiity, and if you're not looking for a hip gay lifestyle, you might consider Corpus Christi. While it's not particularly liberal, it is very "live and let live." No one here is especially vocal about gay rights, but there are gay teachers, doctors, architects, lawyers, etc. who pretty much live their lives without anyone caring about who they are or what they do.

I'm in my 50's and have several gay friends. Austin is for the young at heart, not just the younger crowd. Houston, Dallas or Austin would all be good choices.

Yes I agree young at heart that is very important. What is also important and it's overlooked way to often. I would never retire to any Metro in America, that did not have a Gay Community Center. Reason being the older gay person is very overlooked. To come right out and say it, is subjected to predjudice. Predjucide in housing especially in those older years, in many straight retirement communities. It goes on Im aware of it and I have had to deal with it with older friends. They are not wanted in senior housing and a number of nursing homes type settings. It doesn't matter to me if its illegal or not. All I know is I don't want to deal with that in older years.

So in my older years I would want to know a Gay Community Center existed, that addressed this segment of society. With informational type meetings. Social functions where others could meet and form support type systems. A place to go to.

I'm finding that seems to be in Dallas and Houston, at least to some point anyway and thats good news.
