Nothing negative about being gay in Brum in '07
Mike explained that he felt a lot more comfortable as a gay man living in Birmingham now than he did in 1990 when he moved here from Manchester because "there is a higher visibility though not as high as it should be. There is certainly a better gay scene than there was though it's not as good as it could be. The gay village area is a safer place to be and there is a gay area but again it's not as good as it could be but we need some public money there to address those sorts of issues." Apart from the need for some public money to improve the gay village, Mike was unable to think of any really negative points about his experience of being a gay man in Birmingham in 2007.
