Great Place to Call Home

Many people call wherever they grew up “home” and I get it, it’s a place that had a huge impact on you as a person during formative years. Austin is unique in that I have never been anywhere that had such a large number of individuals who called Austin “home” even though they grew up elsewhere. Perhaps it’s a regional thing, but the more likely answer is Austin Texas is rare and has the perfect mix of specific factors that make home Austin, not where I grew up possible. Some of the elements that make this possible are great people, community acceptance of newcomers, open mindedness, abundance of opportunity (economically & socially), respect for the environment, self respect, empathy, and hope. Austin is a giant small town focused on maintaining and creating a great place to live that includes everyone in the process. I grew up in New York, but without a doubt Austin, Texas is home!!

Gay Communities My partner and I have heard that Austin is one of the top places to live as a gay couple. We are getting married in August and were considering relocating to a bigger area than where we are living now, with mroe culture and things to do. What communities or neighborhoods do you suggest? We are both educated and would be working in healthcare/education. Any help is appreciated!
