Looking for a change of pace (currently in Boston) and am considering trying out Denver. I’d love anyone’s input on relative pros and cons (gay community, food scene, city culture, what the people are like, etc)! For context: I’m a gay male in my mid 20s. Bos has been nice and all but I’m tired of how expensive it is and want to try something new.

Also live in Denver - moved from LA after college. Definitely a big fan - the craft brewery scene is big as are the outdoors. Almost everyone skis or snowboards during the winter and you're kinda looked at as the odd one out if you don't do that and 14ers (14,000ft hikes) during the summers - that being said, everyone has been extremely welcoming and down to earth and down to help people try out both activities if they don't have prior experience! There's a lot of young professionals and gays from across the country, from NYC to California to Texas to the Midwest. The guy I'm currently dating moved from Boston and he's a pretty big fan ☺️

Glad to hear he’s happy :) thanks for this!

Only move to Denver if you love the outdoors. That’s the primary appeal of moving there. Everything revolves around hiking, skiing, craft breweries, etc.

Yep - that is a huge draw for me!

I just moved here last summer (also from an expensive city) and absolutely loving it. Gay community is fun and incredibly welcoming. So many people are "transplants" here so the drive to meet people is high. Food is alright, not as eclectic and unique as I'd like but so so many more pros to focus on. Gotta love having access to the mountains for an easy escape, constant sunshine and great weather, and amazing music scene. Couldn't recommend this city enough!!!!! Lmk if you wanna chat about neighborhoods. I'm Bi F in mid 20s btw 😊

I lived there in my 20s and absolutely loved it. Now it’s 20 years later I’d still love to move back. Amazing lifestyle, sun, year round sports and laid back culture.

Live in Denver. Moved here for a lifestyle change from DC. I love to camp, ski, hike, etc. The gay scene is fun but definitely outdoorsy. For me that’s a big draw. As long as you like that you should have fun. If you do end up coming out, Dm me, happy to introduce you to some people

Thank you!! Def will do :)

Literally everyone is moving to Denver.
