    Reason for wanting to move to a gay friendly suburb is my ds.. i want a place my ds can grow up in where we will be more accepted as a family.. Somewhere where its not so rare to see. We love the beaches but it seems to be all oldies there.

    But I guess u could face bias anywhere sadly
    I have a very openly gay friend who lives in aspley too. She is originally from the southside though.
    Growing up my mother had a lot of gay friends. They were all on the southside too around Greenslopes mainly. Actually come to think of it I know a fair few gay guys who live between greenslopes and the gabba.

    Does it have to be northside? I have gay friends (both male and female) that live Camp Hill and Mt Gravatt.
    Coorparoo also has some good schools nearby and is fairly central

    How far north do you work?
    Another option is West End (next to Southbank) but fair warning as the crime rate is a bit of a worry.
    I lived in and still own a house in Kelvin Grove for 8years and had a gay friend board with me for 2 years and didn't come across any issues. After he lived with me he moved to West End then New Farm.
    I agree I think the further out of the city you go the more likely you are to run into judgements.
    I hope this info helps and also hope you can raise your family in happiness and safety.

    I just spoke to my OH, she doesnt really know on the north side because she moved from there when she was 12 (Though her kindy teacher told her Mum that she thought that my OH would be gay) Her Mum also had heaps of gay and trans friends, but they were all living around Paddington
