    I've lived on both the north and south side and I find the north side to be a little less tolerant :-(

    But that's my opinion, sorry I can't be more help

    Hmmm, the only places that are 'reknown' for being gay friendly as more inner city, like New Farm, Tenneriffe, The Valley, West End etc.

    It's a bit more tricky with northside areas, as unlike 'inner city' it's more suburbia, but places like Albion, Wooloowin, Nundah are a bit more less 'surburbia' so to speak. I would doubt anywhere more north than Chermside would be too 'gay friendly'.

    I'm not from Melbourne but I'd guess it's the same as sydney, no matter where you live there will be people who hate you and people who love you and people who couldn't care less. Maybe pick where ever is closer to your families?

    I just have to say that it shows how sucky this world is at times when a family need to move to a 'gay friendly' neighbourhood. Why can't they live in any neighbourhood. We are all just people. There no right or wrong. No difference. A family is a family regardless of gender.

    Sorry I know thats not advice, I just think it really sucks that people need to be cautious because of their preference in partner.

    It sure is sucky that our world isn't more tolerant/more accepting to love being love, but then again, we don't know why the OP is requesting gay friendly areas, maybe she wants to be near a more gay concentrated area for positive reasons, as in the social aspect etc and/or her kids being around families with the same parent situation etc. I don't know, I can't answer for her.

    I have only even lived on the Southside since being in SEQld. I know a few gay people out Redcliffe/Kalangar way and they have never had any issues. Only suburb I know personally is Ascot because I work there. I wouldnt want to live there personally, some of the people I deal with are fine with me being gay but others dont, but you get that anywhere.

    I will ask my gf tomorrow as she grew up on the northside (kelvin grove ect) and see what she has to say about the areas.
