Most Tolerant Cities In The World

Fri Apr 27, 2007 11:58 pm

Hey guys, looking for opinions. What are in your eyes the most tolerant cities in the world? I mean in particular in reference to society and popular culture?

New York and San Francisco get my vote. It is amazing! No matter about your sexual orientation, ethnicity, the way to look and make up... you will always find soulmates and likeabouts, society does not shun you...! I think these cities stand for the fascinating side of America and what it became strong through.. people are immigrated and Americans, regardless how they are, and they all redefine the country perpetually! No wonder every immigrant can find his place here, and no wonder people can express themselves openly! I have never seen places where you can be as much as you are!

In Africa, I was fascinated by Cape Town... although a minority of idiots wants apartheid back, it is, in my humble opinion a very tolerant city..

In India, Bombay gets my vote, though nothing comparable to NYC and SFO.. but there seems to be something like a "Bombay cosmopolitanism" of well-educated and friendly people... nothing I can say about DEL for instance...

Which places do you think are very tolerant and respectful?

Edit: if you by accident leave two spaces between two words in the title, the rest of the title is omitted. Hence, edited for more comprehensive title

The major cities ... San Francisco, Chicago, New York, London, Paris, etc. etc. speak for themselves.

As do some smaller cities -- such as Key West, Florida.

Moving outside of that --

for the most part I found little or no problems during my time in St. Louis. thousands upon thousands of the -straights- turned out for Pride Fest and seemed to have little or no problem with it. they just wanted to get out, enjoy the day, and enjoy the music and entertainment. there were a few other religious/ethnic festivals the town had over the years with nice turn outs as well and people just having a good time.

Columbus, Ohio surprised me. i heard stories. went. and had a blast and were wild and fancy free.

Sandusky, Ohio. the town is overrun with people of all types, shapes, and sizes thanks to Cedar Point. and the people just seem to mind their own business, accept it and let people go on and be themselves.

You might want to ask Richard Gere about that  

I agree about New York. I disagree about San Francisco. They have shown an intolerance for the military, such as the rejection of being the home to an Iowa-class battleship as a museum, and attempts to have recruiters thrown off campus.

You are absolutely right, and I condemn the procedure - hence my remark though nothing comparable to NYC and SFO, meaning in a relative Indian sense. Have a look at the thread here in non-av, I think most Indians disagree with what happened.

On the face of it, Amsterdam. (Gay) sex, soft drugs and rock 'n' roll and what-have-you. But it all seems so frenetic. London is more chilled and laid-back.

Sometimes I get the idea it's more like the people don't care, not as much that they are tolerant.

And it saddens me to see that in cities like Amsterdam or Brussels, tolerance is getting under pressure from minority groups, mostly young radicalised male immigrants from Northern African countries.

One of the more interesting things I saw (besides some hot lesbians making out in an alley) Were all the nude women and mostly nude men. I also saw a straight couple where the guy was leading the girl around on a chain (like the good sub she was), and occasionally stopping having her hands against the wall like she's being arrested, and him smacking her butt with a frat paddle. That's not my thing, but it was pretty hot to watch  Wink

I think SFO is tolerant in some ways, but if you look at election returns, the city is heavily left leaning.

There was a story many years ago how SMF was the most mixed (IMHO, therefore tolerant) city in the US. In our prior house, we lived next to a Lesbian couple, mixed raced, leftist, Asian, WASPs, etc. and we would all get together w/o a problem.

I have a similar arrangement in my current home, it is a very mixed neighborhood.

SMF has also a very interesting phenomena, a division between a poor and rich area that can be only a street away. Therefore most area schools can have a very income mixed student body.

Miami is pretty tolerant as are most large U.S. cities. When we start talking about tolerent cities in the Middle East, places like Dubai, Beirut, and Manama come to mind. Can anyone comment on this or give more examples?

That is also an interesting point. I live in Oakland, which is one of the most integrated cities in the US. I love it! My neighbors are every color of the rainbow, I'm gay, and we all get along beautifully!
Oakland and Berkeley are both very tolerant cities, but I realize most people probably lump the East Bay together with San Francisco.

I'm not gay, but I thought airliners.net was a gay website and tolerant means "gay friendly", and not that the city doesn't harass the people hanging out in front of the Home Depot store. From what I have heard, Palm Springs is 45% gay and straight tolerant. The Mayor is gay and the city council is comprised of 5 members including the mayor, with 3 of the 5 being gay. Gay Clubs, gay follies, etc.... The gay people actually make for great neighbors and interesting people as they don't get bogged down with kids like us breeders do. Yea, I think its a tolerant city but I guess its how you define tolerant. Nice place to visit even for us straights.

My specialty is mechanical engineering so these cities all have some manufacturing or aeronautical or aerospace player. However, I personally feel more comfortable in cities that lean more to the left than right.

Vienna, I find, has a reputation that doesn't do her justice. It's amazing how nice people are once you scratch the surface. However, at the surface, and especially when displaying any indication of ignorance, you'll get a harsh response. The rest of Austria though, is not so.

Tolerant cities, where people are continuously nice in most situations: London, San Francisco and Berlin spring to mind. Those that aren't: Paris, Athens, New York.

Atlanta is a very tolerant place. There are people from all walks of life here. Now, out in the burbs and in the rural areas you will find pockets of intolerance I'm sure (like anywhere) but the city itself is a extremely welcoming place. Plus. it is very affordable for a city of this size.

I have never been to Houston but people seem to love it there..including a Londoner I know who relocated there. Personally it seems to hot and humid for my taste, but that's just me.

If you like the beach, mountains or travel, Wichita might be your least appealing option due to its location and the fact that the airport is not a major hub.

We have plenty of Catholic cathedrals, Buddhist Temples and other religious places of worship that are attended regularly and none of these people are hassled and/or excluded because of it. Our mayor is a moderate and so is our former mayor and another former mayor that is now a US Senator is a moderate.
