I've always wondered why there is such a heavy concentration of gay black women and men in Atlanta...because not only is there a heavy concentration but they're very OUT...

i'm saying this in contrast to liberal California where there is a large concentration of gays but they're not as out and loud visually as the ones in Atlanta on a daily basis...i.e. seeing gay men in female clothing in public places often, lesbians openly hitting on girls, etc.

I was just wondering what it was about Atlanta that makes the atmosphere like this?  Black people in Georgia are conservative and religious yet there is little shame or fear in announcing homosexuality...so, why not?

i would post pix but i aint tryna get labeled as being offensive. Embarrassed

lol, i'm being serious because i am really curious.  i'm from San Francisco which is long held as the gay capital of the U.S. but the atmosphere here in Atlanta is so different to me...it was surprising, in a good way.  I just wasn't expecting it to be so ok.  Some of the people i've gotten to know here are really homophobic yet it doesn't seem to be projected in public spaces.

im referring to the irony of openness of black homosexuality in a conservative place in the south vs ppl trying to hide it more in a liberal place.  Like how did that balance happen of open homosexuality and very open religious, conservative beliefs.

ATL is probably the most liberal city in the "South" tho

It's like a liberal island in an ocean of conversativeness


And most Black people in America live in the South so when you think about it, it makes sense that most Black homosexuals would gravitate to a liberal city in the South... guess they chose ATL cus it was poppin' in other areas too
