    Do any of you have lesbian friends? All my girl friends are straight so I'm wondering if most gay men have straight girl friends as well. I know guys who have other gay friends but rarely here or really see, to be honest, gay-lesbian interaction. Obviously they don't have the attraction in common and places like pride, bars, clubs are overwhelmingly filled with men or geared toward men only

    We have just a couple straight female friends, and some acquaintances. We do have a number of lesbian friends, though.

    We go out to dinner with them, have dinner at our home or at their places, have done all kinds of things together, from sailboat cruises to helping them with their charity fundraisers, and we were active in the political campaign of another.

    My husband has a lesbian friend he's known for decades who stays in our spare bedroom when she visits Florida. He co-founded a mixed gay & lesbian chorus, in which we both performed. We've been involved with an annual lesbian charity golf tournament here for several years.

    My late husband & I were the same way. Our first Thanksgiving dinner together we were guests of a lesbian couple.

    Nevertheless, we spend more time with our gay friends than lesbian. I think that's natural for both gays & lesbians, to have more in common with the same gender. But it's also unnatural to avoid each other socially, and that we don't do.

    I have several Lesbian friends that I would call best friends. I have known most of them for quite a while now (15 + years) Met 2 of them at a place I used to work in Sydney, another was my green grocer ( both grocery and 420 lol, back in the day) and another couple I met on an artists retreat, omg over 20 years ago.
    I love lesbians and have always got along well with them

    I had dinner with a gay retail expert at a major department store. He maintains they need gay men to help them decorate and shop for clothes.

    Of course if you want help choosing paint colors. Brace yourself for beige, beige, and...beige.. I've given up.
