We live in NYC and want to leave. Our LO is 20 months. We are seriously considering Carrboro/Chapel Hill/Durham and we are curious about how queer friendly it is.
Its funny because in NYC our circle of friends is mostly radical, poly, childless queers and we actually are spending more time with straight couples who have kids and similar parenting values.
But as Theo gets a bit older we really want to be in a community where he sees other queer families and preferably goes to school in classes where he is not the only kids with two moms or dads - or if that's not possible, at the very least a school where teachers use inclusive language about different families - or AT LEAST are open to being educated on the subject.
Any thoughts on the area?
i lived in chapel hill for five years (96-01) and still visit frequently to see friends (we are about 2.5 hours away now). id be happy to talk more or answer any questions if you want to send me a private message.
good luck with your decision!!

From what I've seen the area around Raleigh is very gay friendly. I live in Wilmington which is about 2hrs away and haven't had any problems here either.
