    Neither friends nor relatives who are gay. The one's I suspect that are gay suddenly show their fiances to change my opinion. I only know one American who is gay.

    I've got a gay uncle.

    Unfortunately, he was pretty much the living stereotype that groups like Focus On The Family warn about - he was also a sexual predator and preyed on my father among other people when he was a small boy and my uncle was entrusted to babysit him. It was a major factor in contributing to his suicide.

    Fortunately, for myself, I'm rational enough not to let it color my judgment of the gay community at large. I'm one of the most vociferous supporters of equality for gays I know of in my personal life, and though I don't actually know any other gay men or lesbians, I'd certainly be happy to make friends of either stripe. I just don't really have the opportunity to.

    Inlaws' relatives (I guess you'd call them outlaws ) and friends over the years but we've lost touch. The inlaws are invited to all family functions and participate to a high degree in their niece and nephews lives.

    I have a cousin who is a lesbian, and an old friend from high school who is a lesbian. I know a couple of other people who are homosexual, but they're just casual acquaintances. I don't know anyone who is transgendered.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    He wasn't incredibly feminine, but he did have the traditional lisp.

He eventually got a job in Atlanta and lived up there.

    She'll swear to this day that he just had a guy "roommate"...of several years. He wasn't married because "he was so involved in his career". I mean, he was involved in his career, but c'mon...
    I had a favorite elderly aunt who has since passed on but her best friend had a son that they would go visit occassionally. But they both thought he was just a normal guy who never found the right girl.

    He was employed as a hairdresser in San Francisco. I'll leave it at that.

    I do have gay friends and coworkers. Have one gay male friend who has helped me work on remodeling projects and I consider a good friend. He often will joke about the gay thing.
    Other gay friends who do not speak about it there becomes the elephant in the room.

    One of my best friends is presumably gay/bi. I have no idea which as he seems to be a little unsure as to who he is. Nice chap though.
