Hi, We live in Port Angeles I work in a big box store and see lots of people I see lots of gay people shopping at our store there is an open gay person working with us I haven't seen any problems and have been here for almost 6yrs. I think this is where the largest cross dressing convention is held and the stores cater big time to this event I realise they are not all gay but a alot are. quite a few live here and dress as they want all year long with no problems that I have heard of it is a short ferry ride to Victoria lots of spectaculure views. From our house you can see the olympic mountains and Victoria which by the way our home is for sale but this is not why I am telling you about Port Angeles to us It has been a great place to live--you might contact the hobbie store the owner in Port Angeles he is gay and has lived here for many years he would know 1st hand if there are any problems I'm not aware of

Definitely Olympia! I don't know about the other towns mentioned, but I would have to respectully contradict the poster who suggested Centralia. It has a charming downtown and is an up and coming community, but I would have to say that any community that is touted as gay-friendly as long as the couple is not overt, is in my opinion not gay friendly. Only a community where gay couples can be affectionate in public the same way a heterosexual couple can, without receiving disapproving looks, or comments is a "gay-friendly" (accepting, tolerant) environment. Just my 2 cents.

I would echo that. My best male friend is gay, and he did business in Centralia for plenty of years. He also kept his orientation very low profile, and he did that for a reason. He found the town very culturally conservative.
