Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was home to Brian Kinney, Michael Novotny, Justin Taylor and all their friends and family members. Its residents held it with low regard. (US: The Snake in Paradise, Gay or Straight? That's the Question, Home Is Where the Ass Is) The city was particularly notable to homosexuals for Liberty Avenue, the centre of gay Pittsburgh and home to many bars and clubs such as Babylon and Woody's, the Liberty Baths and Liberty Diner.
