Albuquerque Gay Neighborhoods
Albuquerque, New Mexico has got quite a few good things going for it. It's sunny over 300 days out of the year, but the air is dry which means none of the usual summer pests will be present (mosquitos). It also has great scenery despite being in a desert due to things like the Sandia mountains.
The city is also leading the country's major cities in parks, with over a quarter of the city being gorgeous public park space.
The cost of living in Albuquerque is average, with 101 points to the nation's usual 100. The home prices are also affordable, with most of them being $200,000 to $300,000. However, if you're moving from a densely populated city center up north, you will end up making less money when you move there. It evens out, but it's something to consider.
LGBT legislation is great, with legal gay adoption and marriage. However, there is the one issue that you need to have SRS done to have your birth certificate changed.
