Is Bairnsdale very homophobic?

It`s been on TV lately as having a very homophobic local newspaper and was just wondering if that was the general feel of the place or just a small minority ?
I own an investment property in Bairnsdale and hope to move there in the next 10 years but if it`s a homophobic place I don`t know if I want to.
It really is a beautiful city though.

No, the local editorial is written by an 'older' gentleman who isn't reflective of the region. After that editorial was written, there was an uproar and a call for them to print an apology. This was particularly driven by the younger crowd. There are plenty of gay people living in the area so that would indicate there isn't a 'culture' of homophobia (I hope not anyway!)

Easygoing67 Thanks for that.
Wasn`t too sure about Bairnsdale and have my house on the market down there but I`ll probably buy another house as they are fairy inexpensive in Lakes and Bairnsdale.
