What's the best way for a recently outed guy to make friends with others in the gay/bi community?

    I just recently came out to a few close people in my life and many people still don't know. The problem is that I have no support in this area of my life. I attended a Christian college for my bachelors and I am at the same college for my Masters. Translation = I have no gay friends. I am not looking for hook ups or creeps but just guys that will understand where I am at in life and have been through something similar. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

    I do want to say I'm not so sure how to help, but I wanted to bump this post so maybe some others could assist.

    Congrats on coming out, man! Maybe there are some LGBT groups in your area where you could meet up with others? I'm not really sure how one seeks out other gay/bi individuals, but I understand that you need someone to talk to and help understand.

    I live in a small, southern town here in Alabama. Not many people around here to talk to or meet up with, but that's why I'm glad I've found a forum like this. They're very supportive.

    Good luck!

    Get Grindr. Yeah it's primarily used for hookups, but you can find decent people on there if you screen well.
