It was at the top when I posted, so someone did dig it up - and I never noticed that the original post was 2008. I don't remember who it was - but I also didn't really notice anything unusual about the new post - but maybe I was just naive.

How are most of us supposed to know the answer to the OP's question? I don't. So I didn't respond to the OP.

Why is that so curious?

Yeah. More visual, less downlow guys.

They are starting to dress nicer too.

More clothes that fit, rather than hanging rags.

Whoa, this thread has been revived from the dead.

While it's still open and on the front page, I'd like to bring up the fact that it feels like the epicenter of gay life in Houston is starting to change, or in the very least decentralizing from Montrose. A common cycle in large cities with 'gayborhoods' is that once an area has been defined as that part of town, it typically sees a cultural and financial renaissance, which in turn causes more well to do families to move back into the area, which eventually makes it unaffordable for the original population that helped convert the area, thus forcing them to move out somewhere else and repeat the cycle.

Houston/Montrose has been relatively unaffected by this trend as much as other 'gay' parts of town in other large cities have, but I think that day has finally come or is starting to here as well. Sure the center of gay nightlife will still probably be Pacific st. @ Montrose at least for quite awhile more, but it doesn't feel as many gay people are living in close proximity of the neighborhood as they once were. It's essentially all yuppie families, upscale restaurants, and mattress firms now. A lot of my friends have always wanted to live in Montrose, but couldn't dream of affording the average rent there now and therefore have to settle continuing to live with their families or moving to some far flung suburb where rates are much cheaper. Does anyone feel that there will be a new part of town like Montrose once was, and if so, where would that be centralized near? East of Downtown? Downtown? Some part of the heights that hasn't been as gentrified/developed yet? I found it interesting that the pride parade was going to be moved downtown this year as well until there was a lot of outcry. Alternatively, perhaps 'being gay' is less of an identity today since it is more accepted, and perhaps these traditional areas of town are less needed in today's society since it's easier for a young gay person to meet other gay people in any part of the metro now. Sorry for the pre-coffee ramblings, it's just a trend I've been noticing for awhile and am obviously interested in.

Well, Houston has quite a few black people (more Mexicans, but still lots of blacks) and I think that any city of a decent size has things for gay people to do.

I see questions like this all over the forum. I don't even know why. It is safe to assume that any city of size (let alone one of the largest in the USA) has at least a few areas that have stuff for gays to do, and a simple search would show you that this part of Texas has lots of Black people.

I mean, if you go look for trouble and problems you will find them anywhere even San Francisco, but if you keep your personal sex life personal you have nothing to worry about.
