    That Don't surprise me in the least. That is the most upscale neighborhood bordering the suburb of Ferndale, and Ferndale has become sort of like a magnet for the community. Most of my old G/L neighbors moved to Ferndale when my neighborhood started to become more muslim and they could cash in on thier homes.

    The south isn't exactly known for gay tolerance. I am surprised that in 1990 and 2000 GA locations claimed 2 - 3 of the top 10 highest per capita LGBT couples in the country.

    Ah.

    It's arguable that, in certain aspects, Atlanta isn't "Georgia", or, by extension, very Southern anymore. The LGBT community has been well established in "ITP" Atlanta for a long time (all the places in the 1990 and 2000 rankings are intown Atlanta areas, or "Inside the Perimeter").

    http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/maga...as-278455.html

    There was an article in Sunday's (I think) Atlanta Journal Constitution noting that Atlanta's neighborhoods not making the 2010 top 10 rankings had to do with increases in the sizes of LGBT communities elsewhere, and not with any decrease in the size of Atlanta's community.
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    That is interesting. I have never been to Atlanta and I don't know much about the city, or GA for that matter.

    Yet another interesting article: based on 2010 Census data, this one is about rural and exurban counties with the largest number of same-sex couples.
