    I'd ask him out...
    Only kidding.
    It wouldn't bother me, cause none of my close friends mind me being gay. so it goes round in a nice circle...

    Either way we're not being told, which in many ways gives it away. May be it could even be neighbours, Ireland.

    what would you do if you found out that a very close friend is a homosexual??
    I have always thought I was very liberal until now...It is so hard for me to grasp the concept...it is so weird
    Continue being friends with them. One of my best mates came out a year ago last weekend, and I've actually got closer to him since. I don't see why people find it a problem...

    Just try to accept them. It may not be easy at first, but it will be worth it. They need your friendship, they are the same person they were before they came out.

    My best friend in the whole wide world is gay. Somehow I always knew that he was. But when he told me I was totally fine with it. I have many friends who are gay and it doesnt bother me at all.
    I'm pretty much like that, but i'm the guy

    I know society is going to give my friend a hard time as intolerance is reinforced in the popular culture music media church...its a choice between isolation or secrecy...I cannot begin to imagine what homosexuals face on a daily basis...even if they are in the closet it must hurt hearing all this negativity towards them

    I find that in the possible sheltered life i live that intolerance has never been a problem, people only laugh when i do outragous things like tonight partly dressing up as a bunny girl! This is partly why i came out, i can argue my case much better

    well you should be grateful for liberalism in your homeland...other places are not that tolerant and if you came out...you would be in fear of your life or face a suspicious death: extreme homophobia i would say

    I cant imagine what it is like to live in a society like that, but if i did i doubt i would ever consider my feelings properly

    Yes look at Desmond Tutu's article in The Times, I read todays paper and it had that in there. He claims it is just as bad as apartheid. He has a point.

    I just found out one of my friends was bi, that was certainly a surprise, she was always so quiet and normal.
