Dear Charles,
I would go a little bit northand into Austin. Some smaller towns and rural areas may not be as friendly. San Marcos is a college town so that probably helps, but I would move to Austin. Austin is known as "The blue dot in the red state" if you know what I mean. There are several very gay friendly neighborhoods in Austin, Travis Heights, Zilker, Barton Hills, Northwest Hills to name a few. I would be happy to help you find the perfect neighborhood. If you like, I can send you some references from past gay and lesbian clients. Please let me know what I can do to help you make the move and good luck!

In my opinion, all of Texas is Gay Freiedly. And everything is big in Texas

Move a few miles north to Austin. It is a pretty liberal place. Only about a 20 minute drive to San Marcos.

No need to move to Austin to find a GLT- friendly community! I went to school at Texas State in San Marcos, and I am now a licensed real estate agent and apartment locator in San Marcos and I will tell you that it is very accepting. There is a great GLT community at Texas State, and yes, Austin is only a short drive up the interstate!

I lived in San Marcos during college, and I would say a big yes on that one. All of the Austin area is, really. =)

San Marcos is about 20 miles south of Austin, which is probably the most liberal city in Texas, and one of the top 5 gay friendly cities in the country. Also being that San Marcos is a college town(home to Texas State), which is also considered a party school, I think it would be safe to say yes. Most of the outlying areas from Austin, minus the "more rural areas" are very gay friendly.
