Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

Medium. The gay community is low key and on the down low. LGBT expats use social media to connect with people, and then network from there. The expat LGBT couples I know have good local friends in their community. However there is a lot of "live and let live," and it's certainly not dangerous like in certain countries in the region. It is certainly not a European country or the USA -- there aren't gay clubs, gay-owned businesses, or a gay neighborhood. - Mar 23, 2017
Angola is very anti-gay. We know a gay expat couple here, but they do not mix at all with the local population. - Apr 23, 2016
I have had several gay and lesbian friends who were quite content. - Aug 31, 2014
