Hi we are two males who have been together 11 years and looking for new friends for when we move to STT
Are there any other gay couples there, who would like to be friends? We are pretty mellow and in our 30s and 40s. Not into the scene. Laid back and quiet.
Thanks

Prejudice against strait people?

Pay no attention. After you get here, get out and about. You will find lots of new friends

I have known a lot more single gays than couples on the Islands, but there are more than a few I'm sure. So once you get here, take your time, relax and if you get out and about they may find you.

Ok we love straight friends too. In fact we have more here than we do gay, but by moving to the islands we didn't know what the gay population was like. Figured there would be a limited number living there. Was just trying to feel out a few good friends, no insult to anyone. Sorry if it offended you

I have a few "coupled" gay friends here and many singles. This is a wildly diverse little community in all aspects.

Back in the 60's and 70's when it wasn't chic to be gay on the mainland, there were quite a few gay friends that I knew who had migrated to the Islands where different lifestyles were more openly accepted than they were back then. That is one of the things I love most about the Islands, their willingness to accept anyone no matter if they have a different lifestyle, or fat or ugly or half crazy or just ignorant. So if you come to the Islands with an open mind and an open heart, friends of all kinds will find you.

They stated they're a gay couple looking for friends. Not a gay looking for couples. Unless that's what you're into. 😉

That is not what they asked. "Are there any other gay couples there, who would like to be friends?" This is what they asked. But lets not beat a dead horse. I don't care if they are only looking for Gay couples to hang out with. Knock yourself out. This is what's great about the Islands, noone cares either way.

It's easy to meet people so just get settled in and enjoy island life and exploring.

Not everyone likes alternative lifestyles, including gay and interracial. It might not be thrown in your face, but it is in people's minds. The islands aren't that progressive.

I remember once when a cruise ship was ready to dock in F'sted. Had the usual welcoming committee, etc.
As soon as they heard it was a gay cruise, the band packed up and went home, and the taxi drivers left.

I'm surprised how some people are willing to lose much-needed revenue and stay in the poverty zone.

Then let it stay in their closed minds and not their open mouths. I disagree, the Islands are way more progressive than the states as far as lifestyles goes and were at the very least more tolerant even back in the 60's and 70's when back then having a different lifestyle could have got you hung or strung up in some places in the states.

I disagree - the attitudes about homosexuality in the islands are predominantly those of intolerance. Just look at the Facebook discussion about Sen. Buckley introducing the gay marriage bill (which will never pass). Death threats and righteous anger in abundance. I say to any gay friends in the islands - be careful. There are sadly those who have paid the ultimate price for being gay. I see way more tolerance in the states now, even in Florida. 😉

Julie - could you reference what bill number or the FB post? I took a look and couldn't find anything. Thanks!

I can't find the picture of Senator Buckley with all the the terrible comments on it on Facebook. Perhaps she took it down. I'll keep looking. 🙁

But here is a link to the front page of the Avis with the announcement:
