    A lot of my college friends are LGBT+.

    One or two gay acquaintances in high school, never really had any real in depth conversation with them. Had nothing to do with their orientation but a lack of things to talk about. Very nice guys. It's funny since I was very anti-SSM back then, and yet we got along.

    A girl at my church came out the closet and went down the more butch road. She still comes to church more often than not and I'm still on good terms with her, pretty much everyone in my old youth group is. A nice girl, has issues to work out though.

    I'm pretty sure most of us have had some passing relationship with someone who was gay or bi.

    I don't know any transgendered folks though nor have I befriended any, doubt I ever will, to be honest.

    My most sincere apologies. I didn't provide an "I'm gay/lesbian/transgendered option". A terrible oversight on my part.

    I simply refuse to believe that someone could not have at least ONE friend or family member that's gay. Statistics say it's damn near impossible.

    Re: Poll: Do you have gay relatives? Gay friends? Transgendered family/friends?

    none of us knows for sure how many gay/lesbian family and friends we have ... some of the biggest homophobes on these threads may be gay ... just don't know, and we shouldn't really care that much ... if it's important, it'll come up .. I remember being at a party and this guy came up to me and told me that he found me attractive and asked if I was gay ... I said that I was flattered, but that, no, I wasn't gay and wished him luck hooking up with someone ... and I hope he found someone, as I did, got married, maybe even raised some kids, as I did, and stayed with that person forever as I have with my wife ... life's too short to be worried about who's sleeping with whom ... as long as my wife is just sleeping with me, that's all I care about ...

    For my part, two of my deceased uncles were gay. I also have had numerous gay friends and acquaintances over the years. One of my extended members is undergoing gender reassignment.
    I don't have any gay relatives that I'm aware of. I once had a friend who was a lesbian who moved away years ago. I also had a male acquaintance who was gay, but I grew up in a pretty small town (where I still live) which would limit my exposure to many gay people.

    You either know you do or you don't, but everyone has gay relatives and friends.

    There are no gay people in small towns? Who knew?
