People in FW look at the homosexual like they are aliens, they accept it but not all do and for the most part there isnt any real problems, except for the "cowboy attitude" who cant, and those are the ones to be aware of. There are more non-gay people that hang out in the gay bars than those actually gay! It makes me think that, when it comes to hanging out with a gay crowd or going to a gay bar, Dallas has the best places. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.

Are you asking if there are gay-pride parades thru downtown Fort Worth?
Honestly, the Oaklawn area in Dallas (Cedar Springs) is the best place to be "gay freindly"..is STRICTLY Gay oriented, but Non-Gay have no problem with it because after all, it is 90% which is where most of the Gay from FW have come because it IS so gay oriented. Others who live in FW say they drive to Dallas when they want to go out. If I have to go to a bar, Cedar Springs in Dallas is the best around.
My guess would be Arlington, but it is strictly a guess. Hopefully there's some better answers to be posted here soon . I personally haven't observed anything that is billed as "gay" or to any other specific group for that matter but I've only lived here for about five months.

I lived in the DFW area for 16+ years, but don't have a finite answer for you. Perhaps others can weigh in on this issue and be helpful.

North Side is where the Stockyards are and tend to be more Hispanic but the farther down I35 and 820 heading north it gets into the North Richland Hills area and the neighborhoods pick up.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members. What areas are suitable to live in (including nearby suburbs) 3. The West side (where I grew up) is very easy going.
I really can't say whether there's a big difference in 'friendliness' of Arlington vs. East and South Dallas tend to more African American, which is not bad, but they are in the lower ends of FW (some nicer areas but you have to look for them.
I live in Dallas but I grew up in FW and spent 30 years there. I know about "gay freindly" because my brother (who now lives in AZ) is Gay so I am not just posting words without first hand knowledge.FW is referred to as East side, South side, West side and North side.
