What's wrong with where you are now?
Please, just stay there..Austin, Inc. is no longer as cool and neat and beautiful and friendly as it used to be...before a hundred thousand other "family's" just like your's moved in and destroyed the place for those of us who have lived here our whole lives.
Go to Dallas, or Houston...you will like them much better...trust me. there are too many gangs, and bums, and drug dealers here..it's just not safe any more.

Welcome to Texas! Austin is a very open minded city. We are the blue dot in the red state. People here in general are more educated and liberal than in other parts of Texas. You can think of Austin as the San Francisco of Texas. While there are some neighborhoods that have more LGBT neighbors, most every community will be tolerant of someone elses lifestyle. I have found the perfect homes for some of my past LGBT clients in: Travis Heights, Northwest HIlls, Tarrytown, Westlake, Hyde Park, Bouldin, Barton HIlls, Circle C, and Shady Hollow. You said "outside the city", so I think Shady Hollow may be a good fit, its only 15-20 minutes from downtown, but feels more country with .40+ lots and just a mile past the city limits. It also has lower tax rate because its just outside the city limits.
If you can tell me a little about what your looking for ( size, budget, ammenities preferred) I could send you some homes that might work for you. Also we have a local LGBT magazine as well as a few clubs that are specifically geared toward the LGBT community. I would be happy to give you a copy of that as well as a Relocation Guide for Austin. I would love to help you find the right place to lay down some roots and call Austin home.
