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

It seems to be. Everyone can date freely and I haven't heard about any couples being harassed or hate crimes being rampant. - Nov 5, 2017
I think so. Friends we had who were gay seemed to enjoy it. But I can't speak directly to their experience. - May 31, 2015
I'm not sure what the gay scene is like in Tijuana but I have also never heard of anyone who is gay feeling uncomfortable or targeted. - Mar 25, 2015
I think so. - Apr 30, 2014
Tijuana isn't as liberal as Mexico City, but there are some gay clubs. San Diego has many options. - Apr 4, 2011
Tijuana has its gay community but it not as "out". It would probably not be considered ok to have a public display of affection in Tijuana between a gay couple. San Diego is definitely gay friendly. - Mar 5, 2011
While Tijuana is a little more "liberal" than other parts of Mexico, it is still Mexico and tends to lean more conservative. - Dec 29, 2010
I believe so, and again - San Diego has a very diverse population. - Aug 11, 2010
I really can't say about Tijuana but San Diego has a pretty thriving gay scene, I'm given to understand. - Mar 11, 2008
