The New York Times published THIS ARTICLE exploring the “flip side of homophobia” in gay-straight guy friendships:
The kinship between gay men and straight women is familiar to the point of cliché (see: “Sex and the City,” “Will and Grace,” Kathy Griffin’s audience, etc.), but friendships between gay and straight men have barely registered on the pop culture radar, perhaps because they resist easy classification. For every sweeping statement one can make about such friendships, there is a real-life counter example to undermine the stereotypes. And as with all friendships, no two are exactly alike.
The article goes into the intricacies of gay-straight buddies and what it means to the men on both sides of the sexual divide, as well as why it’s difficult to portray these relationships in pop culture because each dynamic is unique. I’ll reduce it to this: If any of my straight guy friends are wondering, the answer is yes, I have of course pictured us having sex.
