Nando, I’ve been reading your posts on having a Gay Best Friend and know you’re writing a book on the topic and it gets me excited to think of having my own Gay Best Friend, and don’t worry, I read your last article on GBFs are not a fashion accessory, so I know not to treat them like one, but I have an issue.
As much as I’d like to enter the fabulous world of having my own gay best friend, my husband isn’t a fan of Gays. He’s an good man: caring, loving, and is a wonderful father; he even came to the rescue of a lesbian couple in our neighborhood when the block wanted them out, but it seems that he doesn’t approve of the idea of having Gays in the presence of our boys, a 5 y.o and a 3 y.o. He doesn’t go on witch-hunts for them or passes out literature or speaks ill of them, he just doesn’t want them around and feels very uncomfortable around them.
Can I still manage a friendship with a Gay despite my husband coming from the Caribbean and holding onto the cultural idea that being Gay is morally wrong?
