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

Is is tolerated, but lots of homophobia in the society. Same-sex couples cannot get married or register a partnership. LGBT movement is active though. There is a Film Festival and also the march once a year. - Feb 11, 2017
It's not known to be extremely welcoming but I think it would be fine. - Sep 19, 2016
I have no personal knowledge, but I would guess it is not great, as Slovakia is a fairly strongly Catholic country, and public opinion polls find that there are many with negative feelings about issues such as same-sex marriage. - Jun 23, 2015
There are some active gay social groups. - Dec 25, 2009
Very large gay community, many bars and events just for gays, no issues at all. However, there is a conservative element that does not mind speaking their opposition to it. - Apr 7, 2010
