Funny how you perceive Louisville as a town (with a pop. of over 700,000, I'd consider it a bonafied city nowadays!) :-)
I love the Highlands, would stay away from Germantown or Clifton bc they're getting rundown and .... undesirable. Just stay away from the south end of Louisville, where most of the closed minded rednecks live and you'll be ok. (coming from an open minded southend girl)
There used to be a cool a$$ bar on Story Avenue near Market that was up and coming but I don't know if it ever took off. That was several years ago. Had a great name that I've since forgotten as well. Man, I'm so much help! :-)
Actually, unbeknownst to most straight people, Louisville has a very high concentration of bisexual individuals as well. Not the experimental types either.
anyway. WELCOME!!!!

Hi, I grew up here, moved to Los Angeles in 1970, came back a few years ago for good. Louisville has a good handle on it's own identity, but the local culture is exponentially less (if exponentially can go that way) "local" that it was 20 or 30 years ago. Yay rah rah Internet.

I agree you should certainly explore living in the Highlands AND adjacent Old Louisville before settling in, but keep in mind Louisville is geographically a piece of cake. Ditto traffic if you're used to LA. The burbiest burbs are maybe 20 minutes away.

Don't be "afeared" of our rednecks, they are not much different than your Inland Empire-strain. Louisville is, overall, an easy place to live.

A few years ago Ky was looking for a new slogan; the winner "Unbridled Spirit" is on our license plates now. I still like mine better: "Not as Many Banjos as You Expect". You'll be fine here.

It may or may not be true, but NEVER trust the info on population at city data. I am a mod here so I can say it, but it is almost always wrong. That said, that list seems about right. I would think Louisville would be in the top 100 for per capita gays though.

I don't know about the accuracy either, but it's not that wrong. In any case, I agree that Louisville is probably one of the most gay-friendly cities in the region. I only responded because I've heard that "actually the highest gays per capita" line about more cities than I can count.

where gay instead of we're gay. lol

Not that I care, being from Southern Ca myself I have worked with many Gay people over the years and have no problem with them, but why is it that Gay people in general feel the need to network with other large Gay organizations or live in what is considered a "Gay" area. Now I understand it from the idea of not wanting to live in a area that is against Gays, but what's wrong with just living your life in an area that doesn't push forward any agenda? Just curious. Not trying to start any bashing here.

Miles,
An earlier poster doesn't like Germantown... I live here with my partner of 12 years... found a house for a steal (81K fixer upper) and love it... It's the next Highlands with local businesses opening and the younger crowd buying up the property... and it's walking distance to the Highlands. If you have the means, yes, buy in the Highlands, but Germantown is up and coming... And you'll get a great return on your investment!

Connections (on Floyd Street near Washington Street downtown) is the only place left I know of. There used to be a club called The Mercury Paw on Main Street years ago. I live over in New Albany and am single (which I prefer) but have several gay friends and we have had no trouble. But then we are conservative republican types so that may help, LOL! I have lived here my entire life (37 years) and it has gotten much better over the last 10 years or so.
