Hello, all!

My partner and I will at some point be moving to our own home to raise a family in Columbus. We currently live in German Village, but aren't so sure it's super kid-friendly.

We have always felt at home in Grandview Heights but I'm concerned how gay-friendly it is. What are your thoughts/input on the situation?

Thanks!

Anywhere near the center is going to be fine, Grandview included. Have you been to Grandview? Since you're already in German Village, just go see for yourself!

We live in the Wilson Hill neighborhood of Worthington. We have several gay families at my daughter's elementary school. As far as I know, they have been easily accepted into the school and neighborhood. My daughter's best friend has two moms, so if you like, you can pm me and I can send their email address to you.

In passing, I also know of a few gay families in the Evening Street and Worthington Estates neighborhoods. I would guess (based on political leanings and general crunchiness) Colonial HIlls would also be pretty welcoming.

Grandview would be great, Clintonville as well. Like bjimmy said, anywhere near the center is going to be fine. The further out you go from downtown, the less gay friendly. The inner ring of suburbs tends to be more open.

Thanks so much, everyone!

I was a little bit worried, because I don't know a lot about Grandview or their school system.

Grandview is somewhat socially liberal for Ohio and has more of a yuppie bent. I'm pretty sure I've seen rainbow flags here and there. I've heard good things about the school system, enough that I've heard of couples with kids who want to stay in an urban neighborhood but not risk a Columbus city school education.
