Not sure. - May 1, 2016
We had a number of good friends that were gay and they loved it there. - Jul 17, 2014

No problems of which I am aware. - Sep 24, 2011
I don't think so. - Apr 27, 2011
Georgians do not acknowledge the gay lifestyle. That said, there is a closeted gay community. - Jun 9, 2010
