Someone said :
Ive lived in two different small villages and towns in Galway over the last 4/5 years. The only homophobia I ever encountered was actually from a college friend.
I couldnt complain, in fact I think many people have gone the extra mile for us, to make us feel comfortable. Our neighbours are brilliant. I think being 'accepted' depends on your own attitude too. We don't see ourselves as different, and we have never been treated differently either.
Yeah but the question isn't if gays on the country experience more homophobia than those in the city. I'd imagine the instances of homophobia are about equal.
The question is, is life on the city easier for gays. And the answer, obviously, is yes.
That's not to say life in the country isn't good. But that it is easier in cities.
