Just look at the marriage equality vote by suburbs and you'll see which ones are friendlier than others.

If you want an honest answer about places in Victoria that are creative, Gay friendly and affordable - then I hear Daylesford in Central Victoria is one place to learn about. Hope my input is helpful...

If you were considering the country... Fish Creek in South Gippsland is one of the creative (arts) hub of the region and as such the population is made up of a wide range of permanent and short term residents.

Prahran + Brunswick have always been creative and gay friendly however is quite expensive. The more affordable would be west footscray/yarraville/spotswood/ further out daylesford western suburbs.

Not sure they all like gays though. Gay marriage vote had about 40 out of every 100 not supporting it (fact)

ALL Victorian suburbs are friendly to all? You must be joking right? The whole of Victoria? That is absolutely laughable

Typical Real Estate Spincrap. I find Melbourne less tolerant of Gays than Sydney. I would look at Paddington or close to where the Mardi Gras is based.

Sorry I wish that was true but couldn't be further from the truth. I know of multiple queer couples that have purchased property and have had to sell up due to bigoted neighbours/ townsfolk. I think there is a lot of work real estate agents can do in this area to help buyers purchase in neighbourhoods that are safe for them. Comments like these put purchases in tricky situations -please be more aware and honest when providing guidance .

Come on all! Please don't use nasty language. She just doesn't know. Most Melbourne inner suburbs are pretty LGBTQIA+ friendly. It is different further out. There is a map of all the marriage equality vote result: https://mecone.com.au/articlesandnews/australias-same-sex-marriage-vote-mapped/

From the suburb breakdown on the YES vote for marriage equality I remember Lalor in the Northern Suburbs had the largest NO voters for marriage equality. I guess just look up the areas with the highest % of Yes voters

Gay or straight, consider the environment and lifestyle you want. Some hidden gems in the Dandenongs - check out places like Belgrave Heights, Kallista, Ferny Creek. Privacy, gorgeous gardens and still accessible to the city.

Daylesford i s very popular with gay men. As such, it has become gentrified and expensive, with a focus on cafe and pub culture....a mini Melbourne.

Daylesford is deemed the gay capital of Victoria, however, it is very expensive to live there. Food and pubs are also expensive because it is such a tourist town. You dont get much house for under $600K and then you'd need to renovate it. Daylesford hosts an annual country gay festival in March called Chillout. There are a lot of towns within 50kms of Daylesford who still have that friendly gay atmosphere and vibe without the same cost of living pricetag. I would look at Ballan, Castlemaine, Maryborough, Wheatsheaf, Maldon, you will find houses from around $250 - $500K.

No, Sydney is gay friendly, MELBOURNE not so much....

Where are you living thats not gay friendly in Melbourne versus Sydney? If your living in New Town and comparing to Deer park - fine - but otherwise get serious. Northern suburbs of Melbourne inner - Fitzroy Collingwood Northcoate and other side of the Yarra South Yarra Windsor Prahran are MAJORLY gay friendly. Basically anything where people are under 30 and not idiots are pretty gay friendly anywhere in Australia.
