My partner and I may be moving to Winston-Salem. We're a same-sex couple, vegetarian, moderately tattooed, with one son and another due any minute. We'd be coming from Atlanta, which is fairly liberal and veg-friendly. We have family in the Raleigh-Durham area and have spent a lot of time in Asheville but we know nothing about W-S.
Can anyone comment on how how LGBT-friendly the area is? We plan to rent, at least initially. Are there any neighborhoods that are more crunchy/liberal? Any neighborhoods we should really steer clear of? What about schools? Which area has the best public and/or charter options?
