Thank you for that warm TN welcome! lol. Californnia is a VERY expensive place to live. Anywhere where i can buy a gallon of for under $4 is a place for me. Our family is moving out to TN and we wanted to join them. So why not go to a beautiful state like TN!

Where are all the queer's at?=)

You'll probably find more gay friendly people in Johnson City than here on the Mtn. City forum.

There are actually some friendly people in the area that are open minded and accepting of people not matter their sexual orientation. Ignore the redneck morons and come on down to TN if you look in the right places you can find lesbians, bi-sexual and gay people, swingers, people into BDSM and all kinds of alternative activities that the local yokels don't know about. LOL

Don't know about Johnson City, but "fitting in" in Johnson County (50 miles to the northeast and about a thousand feet up) may be a bit much to hope for. We have a LOT of recent immigrants (CA, NJ, NY, FL, CT, IN, and a bunch of other places), but the businesses, government, and current majority of residents are mostly born-and-raised locals. Translation: hard core fundamentalist bible-thumpers.

Based on the statistics I've seen about their distribution in the general population, there have to be homosexuals here. And, god knows, there are lots of tatoos and piercings. Not sure about the "adult industry" because I guess I don't know just what that is. But, there does seem to be plenty of non- and extra-marital screwing going on.:-)

All that notwithstanding, there are a whole lot of really nice folks in the county. If you have, or can fake, some relatively mainstream interests, it's pretty easy to meet some of these folks and branch out from there.

oh I forgot to mention that there are a lot of passion party reps around the area so that shouldn't be shocking to anyone. You may be the only gay couple doing the parties though which who knows could be a huge selling point. LOL

You do want to be clear on the differences between Johnson City, TN and Johnson County, TN. You'd do well in Johnson City, which has a major university and a friendly night life (nothing by LA standards). Johnson County is a agricultural community with a population that is mostly traditional church going people. While I believe no one would shoot you, as alluded to in an earlier posting, you would find most people friendly but distant. You'd end up pretty lonely here. I would even recommend Knoxville over Johnson City, which is probably even more use to gay couples. Good luck to you and don't be afraid to visit over here.

I don't have a problem with anyone's choice of sexual partners so long as no children are involved.
Some of my best friends are gay/lesbian, so welcome to Tennessee. There is a great club in Johnson City called "New Beginings", a fun place to go even if your straight...LOL, they have some awesome Drag Queen shows.

Im curious Sassy why does it matter if children are involved?? I know some gay parents who are wonderful people and extraordinary parents. I know some straight people who are pretty lousy excuses for parents.

LOL You welcome. I will agree that you would probably be happier in Johnson City or Knoxville than in Johnson County but either way I am certain you will do just fine here in Tennessee. It is a beautiful state with mostly good folks and yes the cost of living is sooooo much better here than in California.

I have a friend out in California who is Chiropractor and even he is struggling to make it there with the cost of living being as it is. He and his wife are thinking of moving as well.

Oh.....LOL what I meant and maybe I didn't spell it out enough was ...I don't care who you screw as long as your NOT a pedophile.
