It's pronounced Dan-Vul, not Dan-VIL. Just like Louville, Piiiikevul, etc.

No worries around Lexington, but I would gravitate to being in Lex, or at least nearby for the cultural things you want. I moved to Lexington from Denver, CO for a corporate move, but originally from Philly. People are welcoming and friendly, but they'll know you're a Yankee by your accent.

"Bless your heart" doesn't mean what you think it means.

Bless your heart can mean a lot of things, from heart felt sympathy to utter scorn; you soon figure it out.

I thought about following them and relocating there... but I struggled there. It was - and still is - the only place in the US where I've ever randomly got called "f****t" as I walked on a street, by people driving by (I think it was a carful of U-KY students). I also experienced walking in a door of a gay bar and having the regulars chew me out for entering via the front door (instead of a hidden back door) because the bar was across the street from the city police department and supposedly the cops were watching people going in and out. I added it up and decided I wasn't comfortable in that sort of atmosphere.
I think having a gay mayor changed Lexington somewhat (hopefully). But I wouldn't by any stretch of the imagination think Lexington is now progressive. I could be wrong.
