I haven't been back since 2004, but I loved most aspects of Boston at the time. Climate, culture, entertainment, parks, schools, liberal politics, food scene, hockey. The drawbacks were a studio apartment costing at least a thousand bucks a month in pre-9/11 dollars and the worst roads/traffic/driving of any large city in America.
I recall being pretty impressed by Vapor, but my basis for comparison was gay clubs in Memphis, not the ones in LA or New York. And there used to be a gay bar in Cambridge with a pretty good vibe and male strippers, but my view of it may have been colored by meeting the best lover of my life there.

Boston is a strange city. Very liberal but there's racism right beneath the surface. Very New England in its charm but also in its coldness. I lived there for two years (for a job) and it was the least friendly place I've ever been. The gay scene is all behind closed doors -- you have to know people to meet gays outside of the few sad gay bars that mostly cater to out-of-towners., The only people I know who broke through the coolness were the wealthy outsiders -- they bought their way into society and it worked. At its core, like all of America, Boston loves money. If you have it, you can do anything you want, meet anyone you want. Otherwise, it's a place for people to leave.

R13 and R30 ... it was Paradise. Great music, great DJs, dancers were a bit squicky but I always had fun there until 2010 or so. After that the owners went on a tirade against the bachelorette invasions and started enforcing coat checks and no high heel rules in order to keep all women out. On two different occasions with two different girlfriends of mine (platonic, I’m gay) they were told they couldn’t come in, only AFTER we all paid cover and they refused to refund it. Maybe that is the dickhead Boston vibe others are discussing here.
Buzz Bar on Stuart/Kneeland was freaky... upstairs area with a dance floor that you could feel buckle beneath as the night went on, the crowd grew, and the beats got intense. Only went there once or twice.
Unless you’re thinking of Rise, which was the druggie/after hours “Members Only” bar that was open until 4a I think.
Friends of mine that were here long before I arrived talk of pretty epic bars with themes, backrooms, dancers, whatever... that was clearly on its way out by 2002. True, there’s not a gay scene here like SF, NYC, or WeHo, but Boston is a great city to live with excitement, culture and comforts that also doesn’t make you feel the need for a gay scene. We can be gay pretty much anywhere in the city, and it’s NBD.

I don’t remember theme nights at Paradise. There was another gay bar called “Campus” closer to Central Square in Cambridge. It was quite popular with the college crowd, go figure, but that’s the crowd that would appreciate themes more than Paradise-goers. I think Campus closed by 2005 or 2006.

It is better than most places: healthiest, among the wealthiest, the best public schools, the best colleges, a couple of the best hospitals, the best scenery, variety, history, etc. The salaries are high and the stakes are high: some of the work we do is cutting edge. I think the men are hot and have a bit of experience with that, and I was born with the accent so I’m happy here and perhaps can better understand them.
You’re right: the locals do think it’s the best place on earth and why not? It works for them. If it doesn’t work for others, sorry: we didn’t make it for you. Nowhere else was designed and built for your enjoyment either, so your hate rolls off of us.

I'd say the same thing for Boston in 1974-78, I went to Emerson right in the city. I will say that Boston was not the complete wreck Philly and New York was in the 1970s, but I much preferred those cities. Subways in Boston were a dine on the weekend and a quarter on the weekdays (you used coins, no tokens), and I always felt safe...but everything closed at 1AM. Though Boston and all of them have been cleaned up since then, I have no desire to ever go to Boston again. The Commons are beautiful, I'll say that.

Spent a ton of time in Boston when I was young, especially in the 80s (the 1980s... I’m not Olivia deH), and loved it but agree that the city is not always kind to outsiders. I think it’s one of the best walking cities in the US. Great for strolling, wandering.
A few random memories...
Loved dancing at the 1270 but also roaming the different floors for other fun.
Spent a lot of time walking around the Fens. Fell in love with a guy who tended a little garden plot there.
Something weird I never understood about the T (and still don’t): You would wait, for example, at Kenmore for a train. The different lines would stop. The B, the C. But then along would come the “Not E.” Well, I never knew what to call it. It was an E with a slash through it. Always confused me.
My friends there were obsessed with this Greek restaurant called Demos (?) in Allston or Brighton.
I also recall a couple of not too exciting visits to a very short-lived sex club called Safari, I think. But Boston never seemed like a great town for sex.

I loved the 12 and spent many Saturday nights there in the 80s. The bar owners were really nice people. The were being shaken down by the Boston cops and worked with internal affairs to have the cops busted. The cops got wind of it and harassed the hell out of them including death threats. In the end I think 7 cops lost their jobs and maybe some went to jail. Then they closed the bar.

I was born in a city on Boston's North Shore. Even back then (the 60s), folks from north of Boston never ventured south and vice versa. The Cape (no one there calls it Cape Cod) was always a playground for the South Shore. The rich, of course, summered on Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. The North Shore boasts the best beaches in my opinion and lots of historic towns and villages. Gloucester, Rockport and Essex offer all the authentic New England culture and cuisine you would want. Boston, in my family, wasn't someplace you wanted to visit unless you had to. The layout of city streets makes no sense because they are paved-over cowpaths from the Massachusetts Bay Colony's earliest days. So traffic, even back then, was a nightmare. It seemed to me there was always trash in the streets and there were neighborhoods considered unsafe to visit if you were white. Later, I was at Harvard and a ride on the Red Line into Boston cost just a quarter. Boston by then had cleaned up its act and it was a safer and saner place to walk around. Except for the so-called Red Light District. Just like the Tenderloin in San Francisco: nowhere you wanted to walk alone. I never thought it was possible, but Boston is even more gentrified today than ever, and that goes for Jamaica Plain, which in my childhood was a lower middle-class ghetto.

Some of these comments are hilarious, both with posters bringing us up to date on what the city was like in 1978 - because it's so relevant today - and for the sweeping generalizations and mis-identifications. For example, it's not the "Red Light District," it's the Combat Zone and it was one of the safest places in the city. There were more cops per square foot in the Zone than anywhere else in the city. It's even safer now because it's all luxury high-rises.
R63 is right: there is some kind of magical divide in Boston's North End. People from the North Shore never go south of there unless it's to the Cape; people from the South Shore think there's nothing north of there until you get to New Hampshire. Likewise out-migration by ethic groups post-WWII. Most people of Italian descent lived in the North End, West End, and East Boston then - all on the northern side of the city and for the most part, they moved to the North Shore. The Irish largely lived in South Boston and Dorchester and then the towns on Boston's South Shore became overwhelmingly Irish. The Jews lived in Roxbury and moved west to Newton and Framingham and later to western suburbs like Sharon and Randolph. We're not very imaginative in that sense - almost everyone's father or grandfather took the closest road out of town.
I live in Cambridge and have to seriously disagree about the relative friendliness of the non-natives who move here. One end of this city, the part near MIT known as Kendall Square, is a worldwide hotbed for work in biotech, pharma, nanotechnologies, autonomous driving systems and AI. In twenty years of massive gentrification my neighbors have gone from elderly Townies and working people (Polaroid, Harvard, MIT, Arthur D. Little, Raytheon) to now largely newly-minted PhDs and MDs from everywhere but Greater Boston who can afford to live here and who work in Kendall Square. A lot of 'em are probably on the spectrum; if not then they're just assholes. You're not friendly towards them because they have no idea how to live near anyone else: we shovel our snow. They have to, too, or pay someone to do it. But you can't park in our driveway because you didn't shovel yours. Not the parking space you shoveled out; the driveway. They won't do it a second time, so there's that. That's one example but there are plenty more. You don't invite people like that to the annual block party. I read here a lot about asshole redneck neighbors. My "brilliant" ones aren't necessarily an upgrade.
I met and later married a guy from Texas who moved to Boston 38 years ago. He had no problems making friends - if anything he was fighting the women off where he worked - and he's always said people here were friendlier and more sincere with none of the "Have a Blessed Day" and "Jesus Loves You" shit he got in Texas. I met him when he lived in NYC and he'd lived in San Francisco before that (as well as in Tokyo, Rome, and Madrid) so he certainly had some basis for comparison. It helps anywhere to have someone to show you the ropes and here, tell you how to pronounce "Tremont" and "Copley" correctly, but it points up that there are two sides to every story - some of you sound like Meghan Markle: "Nobody asked how I felt" or "No one reached out to me when I came to Boston" as if someone should. Get over yourselves.

So tell me more about my state’s terrible healthcare based on your friend’s dentist‘s lack of tooth pulling acumen.

Don’t think New England’s blue-state bubble is some safe zone, either. In October, Trump became the first sitting president to address the Values Voter Summit of the Family Research Council, designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Attendee bags were stuffed with promotions for a book titled The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, produced by Waltham-based MassResistance, another SPLC-denoted hate group. According to a Boston Globe survey earlier this year, Boston Police stats show that LGBT people are the most frequently reported targets of hate crimes and bias incidents in the city—more than Muslims, Jews, Latinos, and Asians combined. “People have a false sense of security and widespread acceptance,” says Kristen Porter, grand marshal at June’s Boston Pride Parade. “Since Trump took office, I think more people have experienced the potential fragility of our equality.”
