What's most pleasantly surprising is just how gay the 'burbs are. I mean there aren't any rainbow flags, pink garbage cans and pink bus stops, or billboards with a guy's face in another guy's jockstrap clad crotch. But it's pretty accepting and open out here. A couple months after we moved in someone purchased a unit down the hall, moving in shortly after. Turns out he's gay. And pretty awesome. He contacted us on Growlr and we've been getting to know each other more and more.
Aside from the new gay neighbour I do see the odd gay couple and notice quite a few homos on Growlr, Grindr, and Scruff within reasonable proximity. Of course the Starbucks (ALL of the Starbucks) have at least two homos at each location--let's not forget that their logo is a drag queen. And, we do see the odd rainbow sticker and hand-holding gay couple. Comparatively, there's as much homophobia in the burbs, at least where we live, as there is downtown. However, there's far fewer drunken apes causing shit (e.g. riots).
A part of me sometimes longs for the beach on out our back door and the seawall within a stones throw. But aside from that... I'm quite happy. Living here is obviously much cheaper too.
VIVE LA GAY! <3
