There's a lot of different people and while there are gay and transgender people, most people are cisgender and straight. You will get odd looks if you don't look gender stereotypical. Usually people won't say anything just look at you nasty. Lots of different races here though. Most of us are pure liberal, which I like. Some people are super rich and some are super poor and everything in-between. There is defiantly differences in neighbors. There's two churches I know of. No idea if there is a Mosque, but I know there are Muslims who live here.

Living in Northern Virginia, there is a lot of opportunity for employment. But finding the job you desire is more difficult
Living in an expensive county has unnecessary high payments. Buying an apartment here can easily be a house in a different county like Woodbridge
