A Gay Architect, A Secret Wall

No Comments »

British Mansion

A mansion designed by a famous gay architect has just gone the market for £9m (€10.4m) in Surrey, near London, and it houses a special part of queer British history. The house was designed in the 1930s by British architect Sir Raymond McGrath, with help from a well-known garden designer, Sir Christopher Tunnard.

Tunnard then lived in the house, called St Ann’s Court, with his lover, a stockbroker called Gerald Schlesinger, despite the laws prohibiting gay relationships. To get around the law, the couple had a architectural trick they used to bamboozle guests.

The bedroom could split into two, using a false wall. This meant when guests came they could present themselves as two chaste bachelors, and not two men in love.

Melanie Hudson, Lesbian Hendersonville Real Estate AgentPeriodically we’ll feature one of our real estate professionals here to let our readers know about some great Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, and Other Real Estate Professionals:

I have been selling real estate since 2005! I previously lived in San Diego and initially got my license there. I loved San Diego but the mountains were calling. In 2014 my wife and I packed up and moved to North Carolina. We love the Asheville/Hendersonville area! I have been working hard to build up a new group of clients in the NC area! I love helping buyers find that “perfect” house!

Though traditionally the State of North Carolina can be less welcoming than other states for the gay LGBT community, the Asheville/Hendersonville area is completely different. The majority of residents appreciate and welcome diversity! My wife and I have never felt unwelcome or uncomfortable.

The Gayborhood: Denver’s Lo-Hi

No Comments »

Lo-Hi - Denver

Across the South Platte River and I-25 from downtown Denver, the Lower Highlands neighborhood (aka Lo-Hi) sits on a slight rise with great views of the skyline and historic streets lined with Craftsman bungalows and Victorian homes.

Like so many districts that have become popular with artists, gays, entrepreneurs and hipsters, Lower Highlands was a mostly prosaic workaday neighborhood until undergoing rapid gentrification in the ’90s.

More recently, things are buzzing in the area much closer to downtown, reached via the modern pedestrian bridge across Commons Park West, which connects the area with newly renovated Union Station and historic LoDo (Lower Downtown).

The Gayborhood: Logan Circle, Washington DC

No Comments »

Logan Circle

For a couple of decades, Washington’s gay community has been steadily expanding east of the city’s traditional hub of LGBTQ culture, Dupont Circle. The historic Logan Circle neighborhood abounds with beautiful 19th-century townhouses — many of which have been gorgeously restored in recent years.

Logan Circle has morphed from a dodgy and downcast district to one of the hottest spots in town for dining and drinking.

As you amble around this area, you’ll spy plenty of rainbow flags — the neighborhood is highly diverse in race, sexual orientation, and style, although rapid gentrification is sadly leading to higher rents and pricing out some artists and younger residents.

Darby Jones, Gay Cambridge Real Estate AgentPeriodically we’ll feature one of our real estate professionals here to let our readers know about some great Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, and Other Real Estate Professionals:

Born and raised in northern New Jersey, his academic aspirations led him to James Madison University and The Maryland Institute, College of Art, achieving both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in art history and education. He has since lived in Atlanta for over a decade, teaching at the middle school and university levels, before returning to complete an MBA at Ashridge/Hult International Business School here in Cambridge, MA and London this past fall.

Thrilled to be back in New England and a part of the bustling real-estate business, he relishes in making the dream of home ownership a delightful reality. Attention to detail and empirical customer service are both his passion and top priorities. His mantra is a quote by Goethe – “Dream no small dreams”.

In his free time, Darby enjoys sports, reading New Yorker magazine, and running along the Charles River. He is currently learning Italian and cooking all kinds of pasta after spending time in Florence this past year.

Boston’s gay and lesbian neighborhoods are scattered throughout the city and are accessible via the “T,” a local nickname for the MBTA subway. Southwest of the city, in Jamaica Plain, you will find young lesbian families mixing with gay students from nearby Northeastern and Emerson College. Gay men tend to live in the South End, an upscale, Brownstone-lined neighborhood a few blocks from Boston Common.

Just across the Charles River and accessible by the red-line “T,” Somerville is home to Bohemian artists, young families, and Harvard, M.I.T. and Tufts students. While not in Boston proper, Somerville has a large LGBT population, as well as some of the best retro eateries and vintage shops. In Davis Square, the coffee shop Diesel — complete with gas-station decor — is a favorite haunt for Tufts students and locals.
