I've posted a time or two here as we've looked for a suitable place to retire. It's looks like it may be near Louisville in Oldham Co, Kentucky. We are a gay male couple (55, 60) newly retired. Apart from the gay part, we are a normal couple. He likes gardening, woodworking, koi ponds, rock landscaping and most anything involving a tractor and the outdoors. I enjoy books, writing and computers, in other words most anything indoors. Most of our friends now are straight couples, family and a few friends. We're not in the closet in the sense that we freely talk about each other to our friends and neighbors, but we're hardly activist. We don't go to gay bars, or gay parades (not that there's anything wrong with that). My question is do you think we'll have problems in Oldham County. Thanks!

I think the key word you used is "activist". Oldham County, while very much Republican, is a community of highly educated professionals. In my experience, you will not be noticed unless you wish to be. This is true of any person, persons, or group of people of all demographic categories.

I really don't think you'll have too much trouble in Oldham County. Maybe - maybe - out in the more rural and outer parts, but not really.

You will be fine and probably make good friends. Oldham Countians are generally well educated and fairly tolerant, although it is a HEAVILY republican and christian oriented area. Just beware that there is next to nothing out there with regards to shopping, good restaurants (as evidence by how packed the Applebee's is there), or cultural amenities.
