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

    Inspired by Redress' post regarding Chief Justice Roberts' lesbian cousin attending the Supreme Court arguments on SSM, I wondered how many DP'ers have gay relatives and friends. As people are more and more comfortable with coming out, I think it's more likely than ever that most of us have gay relatives and friends.

    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 have at least two. Probably more. I think we all do.

    I think so too and that would seem to me to be part of what is behind the sea change in the support for SSM. It's not the secret either, that it used to be. Though, I never hedged about discussing my relatives when the topic came up.

    No gay or transgendered relatives or close friends. There are a number of gay/lesbian individuals who are involved in the medieval recreation society that I'm part of, but thankfully it's not something which really comes into play in that venue so it's not a significant issue.

    I do not have relatives, but I do have friends and/or acquaintances that are.

    Several gay and lesbian friends, and possibly a cousin or two.

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

    No, to all three questions, but I have to admit I'm surprised that one of my cousins now married is not gay. I always thought growing up he was gay by just his body language and manner of speaking, so I have to admit I was surprised when I heard the news he was married and had a little girl. It's entirely possible he is bisexual I suppose, but the last time I saw him and his wife I didn't see any sort of love in between them. In any event, I hope he is happy.

    Among my closest friends are "The Cat Ladies" whose shelter I support. They have been together for 25 years. I have another legally married gay male couple that have been together for 40 years. I have another friend who is a post-op transgendered escort in New York City. I really wish she would find the guy of her dreams.
