Thanks guys.

For those just joining us: We are seeking to build a list of poly-friendly cities throughout the world. So far anecdote, reasonable guesswork, and word of mouth have had to suffice, but solid statistics based on polls and studies would be welcome too.

Here's the latest:

Quote:
"The suburbs of Syracuse, NY have a good number of poly peeps."
-- BrigidsDaughter, http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showt...159#post263159
And nycindie suggested looking into Minneapolis. I did so briefly, and it sounds like it (the Twin Cities in fact) could go on the list.

Quote:
"City Pages, a Minneapolis/St. Paul alternative paper, not only wrote about polyamory -- they made it the cover story."
-- http://openingup.net/2012/11/01/poly...e-twin-cities/
And several cities mentioned in reddit sound promising:
Quote:
"Minneapolis/St.Paul MN is a great area for poly and for lgbt acceptance."
"Melbourne definitely wins best poly scene in Australia."
"London (UK) is pretty well catered for in terms of the poly scene."
"St. Louis, MO has a variety of different groups that are poly friendly."
"'Seattle is generally considered to be the poly capital of the world.' Discuss."
-- http://www.reddit.com/r/polyamory/co...t_poly_scenes/
Given all that, I suggest the list now be:
  • Amsterdam, the Netherlands
  • Austin, Texas
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Kansas City, Kansas/Missouri
  • London, England
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Melbourne, Australia
  • Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota
  • Portland, Oregon
  • San Francisco, California
  • Seattle, Washington
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Syracuse, New York (suburbs)
  • Tampa, Florida
  • Vancouver, B.C.
  • Victoria, B.C.
  • Washington, D.C.
Do you agree? Any cities I should add to (or remove from) the list? What have you heard/experienced? Sound off.
