See if you can get a glimpse of the underside of his left foot. Most gays are hot-branded (similar to livestock) with a 'G' on the bottom of their left foot at birth. This stands for 'gay'.

Reason: I find it astounding that stating a FACT can get you negged.
I'm not sure why you were negged; I thumbsed up to even it out.

Ok so I have a friend... Basically he wears fake tan, shaves his legs, gels his hair perfect, wears low cut fitted v necks and has a weird laugh. I'm fine if he's gay but I asked him once and he said no... Now I'm confused. He dates girls but I've never seen him even hold a girls hand and every girl he's been out with they just text. Recently he came in with a love bite. Can I assume he's gay? How can I make him feel comfortable in opening/ coming out?
I am gay, and I'd say it sounds like he is a femme gay guy. There are some effeminate straight men, but all the ones I've known at school/uni who exhibit those characteristics were indeed gay.
I think it's very considerate of you to ask how to make him feel comfortable coming out.
I suppose it's really a question of whether he feels comfortable to admit it to himself; one of my close mates at school, quite effeminate, seemingly gay, denied his homosexuality for years after the rest of us in that form who were more normalish/masculine were open about our sexuality.
If he is gay, he will start to open up to people around him when he himself accepts it.
Edit: And to the people who are saying Ashan should grow up, I would emphasise that she is quite young, that there is a very good chance she's probably right, and she's coming at this from a perspective of, "How can I help him understand that I don't mind whether he's gay or not, he's still my friend, makes no difference etc"
The fact that people are like this these days is a cause for celebration, and an opportunity to discuss these issues, not be cruel to someone for trying to explain the reasons behind their belief.

How does having a weird laugh make you gay???
But in all seriousness maybe he's just very camp you know similar to Russell Kane my advice is just be patient if you keep asking him he might get pissed off, just make sure your there for him if he ever does come out
