    I have a few male gay friends, but the majority of them live elsewhere. It probably doesn't help that I live in a fairly conservative area.

    Other than my partner, I don't have any local gay friends. And frankly, don't really need any. I guess that's what the internet is for lmao.

    And it's not that I'm particularly more comfortable around straight guys or anything, just that I'm not in the bar/club scene at all and afaik am the only gay guy at work. I'd consider several co-workers good friends, and yeah some of them may have been privy to getting the (mostly rejected) moves put on at one point or another. Certainly back in the days when I'd go out after work with the guys. I'll point out that homoeroticism is fucking rampant here, maybe it's just a TV industry thing. It's just one of the reasons I really love my job lol.

    I think the entertainment industry in general is pretty heavy on that; at least that's been my experience throughout my career. There is, sadly, also a not insignificant amount of homophobia, but that seems to be much, much less common and mostly relegated to the "old-timers" who you would sort of expect it from anyway.

    I'm fortunate that I haven't had to experience any of that at the station, really. Then again, I just assumed everyone really knew about me and I'm just finding out after working there over 13 years that that's not the case. So I guess it's not as obvious as I thought
