Hello. I am strongly considering accepting a great position with a company in Danbury/Ridgefield area.

A little about me:
  • I'm a single, low-key, late-20s gay man from the midwest.
  • I am looking to spend under $1600 a month for a 1 bedroom apartment.
  • I'd like to keep my commute to 30 minutes or less.
  • If possible, I'd love to be near a train into the city for the weekends, but this is not essential.

Are there any communities nearby where I could settle, be accepted and not feel isolated? Any there any communities nearby with slightly larger gay communities?

Thank you very much in advance for any guidance.

The 30 minute commute is somewhat limiting as it excludes Norwalk. I'd stick to Bethel or Danbury, there's not much more in the area for someone in their late 20's. If you can stretch to a 40ish minute commute, consider Norwalk as there's a bigger social scene and better NYC access. The Danbury area is not known as much of a gay community, but you'll find that most people are accepting.

I agree with Stylo. Danbury is a small city that is really kind of quiet. You will not find much, if any, gay social scene there. You would have to travel to a bigger city like Norwalk, Stamford or New Haven. You need to weigh the pros and cons of living near work verses living near an active social scene. Only you can decide which is more important to you. Jay
