Im sure theres been tons of these threads before, but recently, one of my lifelong best friends came out of the closet. He only came out to a few people (girls, and select "art school" friends), but by word of mouth, ive heard and confirmed he's gay. Although he didnt tell me, or any of my friends directly, im not hurt by that, on the contrary i completely understand.

Personally, i have nothing at all against homosexuality. Actually, i know some gay dudes that are downright hilarious, so of course im not gonna think differently of him. Even hanging out the other day, he was like the same old guy. The only weird thing is, i dont know if he knows, that we all know he came out. He was talking about moving to california to kinda start a new chapter in his life, and i made a quip about how same sex marriage is legal here in new york now. he gave an awkward chuckle.

Anyway, i guess to give this post meaning, how have you guys (and gals) handled the coming out of a close friend?

tl:dr, friend is gay, doesnt know we (my friends) know, wants to move to cali.

Sleep with him.

Had this situation happen to my friend a year ago. He had a rough time when his dad found out. I knew he was having a rough time so I just tried to be supportive.

give him a hug and say you'll always be there for him.

Just tell him "Hey, I don't want you to be upset, and I totally support you, but I heard you came out."

Why is art school in quotes? Is it really art school or is it one of those TV art institute things?

Probably a code for other gay kids. Many kids in art school are homosexual from what I've seen.

One of my closest friends was struggling with his sexual identity recently, it was hard to see him that upset, ended up losing his girlfriend over it. Shit sucks.

Sit him down. Tell him you know he's gay and that he came out of the closet. Tell him it doesn't bother you. Then tell him if he ever hits on you that you will not be his friend.

That is how I would handle it. Just be honest with him.
#16
hm, it's never happened to me, but my dad's childhood friend came out I guess after high school or something. He said he had no problem with it.

I don't know how I would handle it. It would probably be kinda weird at first though.

The only problem I could see is if they started acting way differently, because then it's like you are hanging out with a different person.

I would still try to support them though

Except don't say the last thing, 'cuz 1) he's not gonna hit on you if he knows yr straight 2) don't flatter yrself, maybe yr not his type anyway 3) you'll sound like a confrontational asshole, which won't help.

Super close friend of mine went from being "asexual" (which I thought was bullshit) to "bisexual" (which I thought was slightly less bullshit), but what pissed me off was the way he handled it. He was "drunk" and "accidentally" sent a mass text out to dozens of people about it... then he got mad when he found out other people knew. It was just a really immature thing to do, especially when almost everybody already assumed he wasn't pitching entirely straight.

The only solution is to socially exclude him until he kills himself. I'm all for individualism, but people that are different like that are just not natural!

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

You do know that gay people are capable of realizing that straight people aren't interested in them, right?

(1) The gay will probably try to turn him (2) they'll sit on anything with a penis (3) you have to be assertive with them.

I see being gay just as important as choosing what to eat that day or anything menial like that. I just don't think it should be an issue that should make people even bat an eye lid at.

I get that it is a struggle to get the courage to be open about it, and I appreciate that. Especially if that person is really suffering keeping it a secret.

I just think its sad that it even should be an issue. I like to think love is blind and all that
