ooh, I chimed in too soon! I see now that you're not talking about a drinking/dancing establishment, but a safe space. YES! A safe space doesn't need to be threatening or "in your face" to anyone who doesn't need it, but the simple fact that it's there could save lives. Let's do this. I want to be part of it.

Who knew Topix had the potential to do actual GOOD?

Actually, just sayin'- my partner and I are very out and open. We hold hands in WalMart and flirt affectionately with each other the same way many hetero married couples do, and we get NO negative reactions at all. West Plains is remarkably friendly to the LGBT population. We moved here from a community that has a domestic partner registry, is nationally known for its' "gay-friendliness", and we feel not only safe, but more included here in West Plains. Because people here don't see as as anything special, but rather... nothing out of the ordinary. We're just another face of normal. Or that's how we're treated. There's no reason for us to be "out loud and proud" because acceptance is already the standard.
Of course, that's as thirty-something adults. I imagine the younger crowd, especially the teens, would probably tell a different story. I think there should be *something* out there for LGBT teens to know that they're safe and accepted and loved. I would rather see efforts towards a resource center and safe space, and I would put my energy toward that. A nightclub... out here... there are too many risks, not the least of which are irresponsible young adults taking risky moves - whether that means driving drunk or going home with the wrong person. WP needs to be established as a safe place first before a bar/club can be opened.
Though, I would really like there to be a centrally-located affordable place to drink on occasion. A place where I could walk home after drinking a martini that didn't cost me $12. But it doesn't have to have a rainbow theme or be gay-oriented at all. Hell. Just put one of those gay-friendly establishment stickers on the door, and pass them around to like-minded businesses, like these guys in Phoenix: http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/ar...
You can even order stickers on cafepress for cheap! http://www.cafepress.com/+gay-friendly+bumper...
Thanks for the post, it was informative. I am beyond happy that you are free to live your life like any other human being here in WP. The LGBT people I know do not live in this area any longer so I wrongly made the assumption WP wouldn't be LGBT friendly due to the 'christians' and small town mindness. This is one time I am glad I was wrong !! I think your point about teens possibly needing support to feel comfortable living their lives is a great point. I'm sure you could be of great help to those who are younger.

Why did it take these people so long to understand you were not actually considering opening up a bar?

I would definitely start up a club that can meet once a month, or every two weeks. It has to start somewhere. Good luck with it.

Personally, I wouldn't bother responding to the haters on pages like this. There is no way you are going to change the mind of someone that hates your lifestyle in a forum. The anonymous setting is the perfect place for them to spew their hate, the worst thing you can do is acknowledge their miserable opinion has value.
