Moving to (and from) Birmingham
Like any large city Birmingham is a transient city. People move here for a variety of reasons, be it for work, love, a new life and for some gay people to be able to socialise in a gay environment they may not find in smaller towns and cities.
People also move away, for a range of reasons. Some of our contributors are no longer resident in Birmingham. Some people moved away and returned. Some have spent their whole lives here. Some came from elsewhere and stayed. Many are therefore able to compare and contrast Birmingham with other places they have lived in.
