We are a gay couple thinking of purchasing a home in Wilmington NC and moving to this beautiful city. Our reservation in moving is our present neighbors are very friendly and accepting of our lifestyle as we are of theirs. It's just no big deal one way or another. Is Wilmington NC pretty much similar to this?
Thank you.

Come live next to us , we are gay friendly!

While I am not gay I have always understood that in Wilmington [ proper]
you won't have any side looks or problems. Should you buy 30 miles outside
of town it might be another story.
I firmly believe that it is no big deal anywhere around here , my BIL is gay and our gay friends visits often and have never felt uncomfortable. Kind of hard for a straight person to gauge though.
Good luck with finding a new home.

The overwhelming majority do not care, the small percentage tht do care are ittrlrvant and their opinion does not matter.

There are way too many stereotypes out there about NC. Unfortunately most are exaggerated, and like in most situations the small number of incidents get
massively dis proportional media coverage.

That's a very, very BIG curve! LOL

Please remember, you are moving to a place that is SOUTH of the Mason-Dixon line.

That said, I would have to agree with LLN, (don't fall over LLN we agree on more than you think ) there are those who are homophobic... just like anywhere.

Wilmington is a college town (imply better educated) so it might/should be better...

movedtothecoast said "if you move 30 miles out of the city" I don't think you would have to go that far out of town.

All that said... let me be clear, I am not gay so - what do I know about how gays are treated "down east" in NC. My perception is, there are no less gay folks here than anywhere else.... (except for p-town) by the coast.
