PlanetOut highlights Gay.com member Thomas, a Spartanburg, S.C. resident, and his thoughts on his local LGBT community.

Thomas says Spartanburg is a great place to live because of its close proximity to Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia and Asheville. He says the community there is small, and laments the lack of LGBT nightlife. He talks a bit about a local gay scandal in which a high school teacher was arrested after exposing himself to a police officer.
