Concord Gay Neighborhoods
Concord, California, is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Home to over 120,000 people, the city is one of the major East Bay hubs. It’s known for its music, including its annual jazz festival and for being home to the Concord Blue Devils, a drum and bugle corps that has won many awards. The city is also known for being the site of the Port Chicago disaster—a cargo ship exploded while being loaded with munitions bound for Europe in 1944.
According to the 2010 Census, 1.2% of all couples/partnerships in the city were same-sex couples. While that may not seem to be a lot, it is actually a fairly good percentage, and it doesn’t include singles or people who did not identify as LGBT on the Census. Many people who live in Concord do so because it’s a cheaper alternative to San Francisco. Because it’s considered a part of the Bay Area and is home to a good number of LGBT people, it doesn’t have a true gay neighborhood.
If you’re thinking about buying a condo in Concord, they start at around $135,000 for a small one bedroom. Larger condos may cost as much as $620,000. Single family homes begin at $250,000 and top out at $1.5 million.
