I am a 60 year old gay man with plans to move to India.
I will be arriving on a 10 year multiple entry visa which means doing visa runs every six moths. I am fine with that.
I have lived for years outside the USA in Thailand, Egypt and Mexico but now want to go to India. I seem to have the money to do it.
I have traveled all over India but not within a gay context.
I am not looking for a scene really but would enjoy dating some.
I really don't want to live in a mega city.

Anyone have a tip for me.
I want a gay friendly place(for India) that isn't too large.
Help please

I think you will not find any LGBT friendly second or third tier city, Heck, outside of Mumbai and South Delhi, you might not find any ! India is conservative country, and a distant cousin of Texas and its neighbors.

The former Dy. General Sec. of US, and now a congressman from Kerala put a private member bill to strike out an old British Era C.R Pc. pertaining to gays - The bill was voted down. The SCOI (Supreme Court of India) has ruled that it is not it's role, but that of Parliament. However, there are other angles to defeat the existing laws pertaining to it in the SCOI.

All the six metros have a close knit and thriving gay scene. In most cases its a don't ask-don't tell policy towards non-gays.
If you have a gay friend you will get to know and have an entry there.

I don't know about smaller cities and towns.

Thanks for the replies you guys. At 60 I am hoping to give up the mega cities forever. Would Goa be more tolerant?
