It's something I don't hide, but at the same time, it's also something I don't feel a need to announce either.

Same goes with me. Well....growing up in rural Appalachia does have a way of keeping me quiet on the whole lgbt thing for the most part. When I moved to Richmond, I came out a lot more....the city is incredibly welcoming of the community.


On another Southern note, does anyone else think this is one of the worst years on record for stink bugs? I've never seen so many around here in my 25 years of existence.

The SE forum is well represented by the LGBTQ etc community. What's cool is that the designation doesn't really seem to matter anymore. Kids today are more likely to identify as a futon than gay or straight (only slight exaggeration). Gay bars are closing and "straight" bars look like the "mixed" clubs of a decade ago. As a Gen Xer I was giddy to see PDA's in Richmond 15 years ago. Now not even the baby boomers seem to notice it.

Stink bugs are getting worse...they have only been in the US since 1998, originating in Asia and coming over in packing crates. They are worse the closer you get to Pennsylvania, since that is where they are believed to enter the country. They don't seem to be as bad down this way so far this year.

Interesting to know. Guess we'll all have a wonderful future with the stink bug for many years to come.

Richmond is the happiest city in the USA. Norfolk/Virginia Beach is second, DC (Northern Virginia) is third. Charlottesville is the happiest area in the USA. Virginia, as expected, is amazing http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...ey-anyway.html

So many of the hated low-density southern metros on the happiest list...

I think all of the skyscraper and city sites are very popular with gay (and maybe bisexual) men. I don't see a lot of lesbians frequenting them, though. I wonder what kinds of sites attract lesbians?

Why are there train gates (not sure what they're really called) for all of the entrance and exit ramps on I-64 between Richmond and Hampton Roads?
