3, all 3 are bi funny enough


Capawe21

All 3 of mine are bi too! The one IRL doesn't know I'm bi tho lol


Blackwinter212

I have a wide assortment of lgbtq+ friends who are pan, lesbian, bi, trans, non-binary, demigirl, demiboy and gender-fluid which is really cool (we go to a selective school which might influence it ig, maybe people are just less of a bigot with such a large part of our year being very multiracial with people from different areas and what not)


ThatOneGuy1357924680

Sounds like a party


JustAGamer14

I wish it was actually but somedays it isn't


P0TAT0O0

I have three too! And while mine aren’t bi, all three of them are gender fluid, and I met all of them on the first day of school. I just naturally gravitated towards them an instantly hit it off. The freaking *chances* of meeting and instantly befriending *three different gender fluid people*, ***in the same day***, I can’t even imagine. One’s pan, one used to say they’re pan but recently said they’re pretty sure they’re actually Demi, and the other just identifies as queer when asked about their sexuality.


PrincipessaEboli

A lot. I’m a music major so it goes without saying.


Capawe21

Yeah, lot of LGBT people in the arts for some reason lmao


coffeestealer

My classmates were half queer, half "straight but I would make an exception" and maybe three "I know I'm straight, I TRIED".


SAUbjj

That's actually a big issue with STEM culture, most LGBT+ people in STEM are closeted so there's been a push lately to recognize LGBT+ STEM people and have outreach and stuff about it.


Sgraffito_cat

Yep. I work in R&D in a pharma company, it's all a big straight cis white male boy's club. It's super disheartening. Thankfully a lot of the younger new hires are really great and accepting of everything and advocating for change in the work culture, but I'm kind of purposely not coming out as nonbinary at work. (I am out as bi to the LGBT group at work though). Though we do have a LGBT association at work, it's primarily allies (which we of course need), but then they have a habit of turning meetings, etc into LGBTQIA+ "the A can stand for Ally", which I am thoroughly against. No one is discriminated against for being an ally. It's all to make the managerial straight men happy.


Hylebos75

Yeah no, I agree with you. The -A is for asexual spectrum folks not allies, we are here to support but we aren't a part of the LGBT+ acronym.


chispaconnafta

+1 100% support but 0% part of the acronym


remembertherats

I don't support ally being in the acronym but I've definitely been harassed for being an "ally" (pretending to be cishet around certain groups of people) before. Obviously you're not gonna get the structural issues and the harassment won't be anywhere near as bad, and in accepting areas there will be very little to no issues for an ally, but sometimes it does still negatively affect you.


Sgraffito_cat

Yeah, allies can still get harassed for being allies. My point was more about the psychological trauma from being queer in hostile spaces, but I figured the previous comment was long enough 😅. I struggled with that a lot growing in (rural MO) where I figured I would be outed even for saying "that's not right" in response to derogatory comments. I'm sorry that you weren't able to be your true self in that group, or even advocate for your basic human rights. I hope you've been able to get out of that situation safely.


remembertherats

I'm working on it. Here in suburban Louisiana, it's not great lmao. Still, I've recently found a group that is accepting, so I'm slowly starting to be able to be myself :)


kyrachel

I want to go into STEM when I graduate college


chordatabyte

Oh it’s def a thing for sure but at least it’s slowly improving. I’m in STEM and so are a ton of my friends & the problems are still real but at least we have each other lmao


stray_r

I think it's been historically safer to be out in the arts than in say engineering. I left automotive engineering in part because my peer group was really awful. But most of my queer friends are from an engineering, comp-sci or mathematics background, but I actually really know them through music/gaming scenes because that's what I do. The bands I've been in over the years have been disproportionately straight compared to the rest of my world.


megaloviola128

Am queer depressed artist teen stereotype. Can confirm.


MadLib1998

i also studied music. all my friends were lgbt, can confirm


PrincipessaEboli

Right? It’s so funny. The classical/jazz music scene is not the first place one would expect to find a bunch of lgbt+ folks. The stereotype is that it’s full of snobby straight whites, the opposite of what you’d think of when you think of a group with a lot of lgbt+ people. But it’s not even remotely like that. Classical music is like, SUPER queer. And everyone knows it. We just don’t talk about it much. A big chunk of my music major friend group is lgbt+.


greenbrainsauce

I work in healthcare and there is a lot of us here too.


PrincipessaEboli

Oh really? That’s interesting, I didn’t know that.


insomniatica

20 years ago I majored in Music… that should have been my first clue! (I realized only this year than I’m pan.) 😂

I want a queer friend too!! 🏳️‍🌈


Redeye97era

And my axe?


CactusFoe

All but one, and she’s on thin ice (joking)


wearecake

I have a friend like that. She’s questioning, she is trying to figure out whether she only like girls’ “aesthetic”.


ct-raye

I was questioning that for awhile and found out I was ace but romantically attracted to girls


Outrageous-Face2112

This makes me go eleueleu


wearecake

?


wholesomeduck24

You heard them


Capawe21

Why is she on thin ice?


CactusFoe

Every time anything happens to her (normal things like she dropped something or forgot her phone) we go “ugggg straight people problems 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️” (she knows we’re joking and we love her)


Dif-fur-ent

or is she walking on egg shells? r/egg_irl


Rosette_Skye

Same


myrthe287

Almost all my friends are queer 🌞


anyesuki

Same.


LyzDov

Same same.


rivercass

Sameeee


Lgbtquack-4

Seriously


Blackwinter212

Some of us are lucky, my whole friend group (or most of it) is lgbtq+ cuz we gat 2 lesbians, 3-4 pansexuals/pan romantics, 4-6 bisexuals/biromantics, 3 non-binaries, a gender-fluid, a demiboy and demigirl It’s a lot and I can be as chill with the homies as ever


Bexkayhn

Must be nice


myrthe287

Yes, they are all amazing ❤


Bexkayhn

Admittedly my initial comment was pure jealousy, but I love this for you :)


Lavender-waves

same, except this one homophobic girl who “adopted” me in 6th grade. haven’t been able to shake her off since lol


ricelover

Same


Frenzy008

0 actually . I am still in closet , I have come out only to two of my closest people . And one of them actually said ' you are the first gay person I know' . I wish I could have at least one LGBTQ friend, idk it just feels nice to know a person who also is part of your community Edit : Everybody is so sweet , I am crying . I might not have irl LGBTQ friends , but I can say I have some amazing online friends


vthanos

You can pm me if you ever need an LGBT friend to talk to <3


Frenzy008

Suree:)


ArtxyPeachxx

Same here, I'm open for chats :)


Frenzy008

You all are soo sweet :)


General_Comfortable1

Don't worry, I want you to know that you can talk to me whenever you need an LGBTQ+ person to talk to!


Frenzy008

As a baby gay , this community feels like home and I never knew I needed that . :)


TheSockCrusader

Be my friend


Frenzy008

I'd loveee tooo


StrangeThingsWithAK

I can be your gay bestie!


marrana_brainz

Pm me . I don't have friends either. We could at least make small talk


jliud_101

My DMs are always welcoming for chats.


blue-haired-barista

Uhhhhh, a lot i guess? Most of my high school friend group and extended friend group are LGBTQ+ and my only real online friend is too. I've tried being friends with cis straight ppl and uh... it never worked out for me


Capawe21

Most of my friends are cis and straight. We've been friends since 1st grade so that helps. And the fact that I'm deep in the closet.


AbsoluteLad9785

Relatable


Discussion-Level

Same. I have a lot of friends and like 2 are straight. I think maybe 2/3 are cis and 1/3 is trans


Laserduck_42

One. They are also the only friend I have


Mendoxs_

same


Dicksplosions

A lot. The only people I'm friends with who aren't LGBT+ are either Straight Ally or Questioning.


CharlieWantsACoffee

Only one... my partner ![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|550) I have the impression that it is really complicated to find other LGBT+ people in real life. We should all walk around with a rainbow over our heads.


Capawe21

I was thinking it'd be cool to have a vision where I could see people's sexuality, where a flag would appear over their heads lol


kc_2525

Sounds like a game like ‘the sims’ 😂


CharlieWantsACoffee

OOOOH YES! That would be so helpful !!!


Capawe21

Yes! I see so many pairs of men and women at my job, and I always find myself wondering, "Are they a couple, or is it common to grocery shop with close friends?"


AshesMcRaven

Same for me, just one and they’re the love of my life! I’d enjoy more company, but I’m a little bit of a handful so I get it when people walk away lol


idcanymore_

Almost all of them are LGBT+, lol


Capawe21

Not that I don't like my straight friends, but I wish lol


XOXQ

Y’all have friends?


originalname345

What counts as a friend ? Someone you regularly talk to but only in school or someone who you talk to outside of school too ? Because if "only school" then 6, if i need to talk with them outside of school then 1


Capawe21

Talking in school counts.


CatsofNovas

Oh man you’re like me, sometimes I struggle to define “friend.” Imo, if I see you 5 days a week and have a class or two with you, then I don’t feel the need to text with that person a lot 😅


IIIRainIII

One lesbian friend. I'm gay guy but i don't fit at all in gay culture, it's hard for me to have anything in common with other gay men around so we can be friends.


Protox_05

Same here. At least I found a boyfriend at the same University where I studied. He also have straight only friends.


IIIRainIII

Mine too, me and my boyfriend are very geek, we graduated in biological sciences and our main topics of interest are star wars, autoimmune deseases, molecular biology, lord of the rings, MCU and videogames, kinda hard to find other gay men like us, at least where i live.


scrapmek

Non-camp, less outgoing queer culture feels largely ignored to me. I didn't understand what he meant for ages, but BigCliveDotCom always says "I'm a bear, not gay". I don't think he identifies with gay culture because he is serious and an introvert. I am 100% attracted to men, but I still feel like an outsider...


PancakePrinceAkechi

1 bi, 2 aro/ace, 1 pan, and 1 NB.


HomieCreeper420

…0 I have never met someone who’s gay irl. Ever.


MightBecomeMain

One, and he's the only person I'm out to.


taylor_2907

The question is, how many cishet friends do I have? Pretty much all of my friends are LGBT


fillmyeyeswithfire

Around 8 tho Ive moved around and only still in contact with 2


MythookJoy

I have like 4 or 5 friends who are in lgbt. They are quite happy with who they are, so I’m happy for them.


Peach_Boy21

Unfortunately 0 :(


Luna_star2

Want to be friends?


jliud_101

Feel free to message me. I'll be your friend. 😊


AndronixESE

this sub(like 823k) and 2 that im like 90% sure they are lgbt+(both online)


kitosathedragonkun

0 - I travel too much to settle down and meet people.


enby_wave

The good majority. I keep attracting aces and bi's, though I recently became friends with a cute pan poly couple.


BendyTheDemonIsHoly

Plenty online and 0 irl :')


MsCardeno

My wife and I are a lesbian and bisexual woman. So I guess I can consider her a “friend” so that’s 1. We have two gay guy friends (that are also brothers) and that’s it. So 3 total.


Capawe21

For a second I thought you meant the brothers were married too and I was like "wtf?!"


Then_Engineer_2776

I don’t really have in person friends and in my online group I’m the only one


Imago_Mothtoya

To make it easier, I’m going to assume “friend” is someone I either talk to or hang out with fairly regularly, not just a Facebook friend I went to school with. So I’m gonna say 2.


Valiant_Viola

A couple. The lgbtq+ centred friend groups kinda alarm me... the ones at my school seem to exclusively talk abot being gay, and while it's nice to have relatability, I think that I'd be uncomfortable focusing on that side of my identity so much. My straight friends are also very kind and accepting so that's good c:


autumnvinesD3B

None I know of sadly. I’m that gay friend.


Jennyfer01

0 and need some, sometimes I feel rejected by straight people


TracyECEC

It really be like that fr fr 🥺 We can chat if you want to?


Jennyfer01

Yeah of course dear


lily-the-fish

i go to an arts school so... many, probably half my friends


Katsc84

None... pretty lonely at times :(


Low-Safe-3291

Literally none and i hate it here


Capawe21

I could be your bi pal! If you want of course


Darrylisnotmyname05

Ummmmmmmm. Yes. Every single friend I make happens to be LGBTQ. Oh wait I have one cishet friend, but I consider her to be a sister so she dosent pop up in my brain as a friend


hellaparadoxial9614

Three. A nonbinary pansexual, an agender biromantic asexual, and a nonbinary gay.


A_Beam_of_Light

Welp I know like 3 bi beans, 4 including myself 😅💖💜💙 and that’s pretty much it. They’re really cool and fun to talk to.


Capawe21

Hey! One of my 3 online lol


A_Beam_of_Light

Oh my god I just realized that this is you! 🤣 Hi one of my bi bean friend! 💖 what are the chances?


Capawe21

Well this post did blow up out of nowhere, so I guess it would've happened eventually 😅


A_Beam_of_Light

True 😂 still pretty awesome though


Capawe21

I think this is the 3rd time we've met in the open before 🤣


A_Beam_of_Light

Lol yeah I think so too. For how populated Reddit is, that’s actually pretty surprising. But really cool in a destiny sort of way 😂


the_gone_angel

The real question is, how many friends do I have? Only like 1, 2 including my fiancée, and we’re all queer


chookensnaps

Y'all have straight friends?


Capawe21

Well when you're heavily closeted and have had the same friends since 1st grade, then yeah lmao


kynthewallflower

none. all my friends are cishet and some are homophobic and/or transphobic so i have to go to pride alone :(


chats0804

Alphabet friends??? Better question, how many cishet friends do you have? I have 5


Capawe21

4


Rizbit_Zir

One if you count my daughter (23). Other than that none. Would love more.


Mahare

Hard for me to tell. At least a half dozen gay, two trans, one nonbinary bi, a few bi/pan, one demi, one ace. Me I'm just a mostly closeted bi guy married to a woman with a gay dad and a bi mom, I tend to prefer "non-traditional" friends.


DylPickle079

1 online. 2 irl. The online one is pan, one of the irl ones is pan and the other is bi


damiansnotadoomer

Hm... 3, I think, although a 4th I'm pretty sure is trans.


Original_A

Virtually, many, in real life - like 2 or 3


YellingMime1

I have 3, but I haven't come out to them


Nix_237

One, lots of my classmates are lgbt though :)


Capawe21

Barely any of mine are. They're scarce here lol


I_Like_Pizzaaaaa

3 of my friends are fruity. I only have like... 2 straight friends. So yea.


semael237

Most of my friends are gay, i think i have only 2 straight friends, and we don't really talk anymore, it's a shame because they were cool...


PseudoBoxBuddy

0 :D


GlamTheClam

16


guyonlinepgh

Truth is, I don't know. Oh I have openly gay friends, and at least two openly bisexual friends. But I suspect a number of my friends are bisexual but not out about it. And really I consider that to be their business and not mine. But it comes back to, I don't truly know.


vf-c

a lot.


VQ-Light

I'm not sure actually.


DMmepicsofyourdog

A few


frishiee

All of the above.


throsumhands

none. I was friends with a bi girl at one point. I wouldn’t say we’re exactly friends because we stopped talking after High School but we still follow each other on instagram (for some reason).


HaveSpouseNotWife

Lots! I’ve always felt very comfortable and safe in queer spaces. Oh my god I’ve spent so much of my life completely and utterly oblivious. It’s almost comical.


fuck-my-drag-right

I’ve always found it difficult to find LQBT friends and keep those relationships. IDK why but I just mostly have straight friends. Wish I had more, but I’m content


irondethimpreza

Presently, 2 IRL


reddoesntcare

Not nearly enough


NerfRepellingBoobs

I have several. I went to an all-girl high school, and I hung out with the bi/lesbian/trans group. My friends as an adult are quite diverse. I have a lot friends that are gay, lesbian, bi, pan, trans, NB, gender-fluid, and ace. I’m not counting them all.


Trans_CatGirl

0 but that's not that bad since I only have 3 friends anyways.


I_exist_but_gay

A lot


TrumanHanson117

My school’s high school population is like, ~25% lgbtq


Capawe21

Mine is like 5% lol


DToMadT

I don’t have any but I would like to make some


the_cnara

I have two close friends, one is lgbt.


Difficult_Jello

birds of a feather flock together so like lot


ailysi0

I have 1 IRL and 5 online, I dont have many friends tho


lambone117

4 outa 5


HayIceCream

I have a pretty even split of straight and non straight.


chrissie148

All but my best friend, she’s aggressively straight


An_internet_rat

i also have 3 online and 1 irl 🤨


EggplantHuman6493

A lot. My friends came out later, and in one friend group more than half is LGBTQ (5/8), although 4/8 actually identify as it (the other guy is aromantic and doesn't like to label himself as LGBTQ)


Sakhoum

Unfortunately no one but I only know 2 from college but they are only colleagues :( I'm so lonely 🙁


s42isrotting

Three irl and one cishet :) /g


Ded_Martha

I'm not sure, but I know my bestfriend is definetly lgbt+, and my other bestfriend is bi, and I also have 3 trans friends!!


QuinnAndTheNorthwind

All of my friends are gay lol


onlyalittleillegal

*panik* I’ve run out of fingers!


Capawe21

Here, I'll lend you some! *cuts off fingers and gives*


onlyalittleillegal

*relieved* thanks!


Wrong-Ad653

None anymore


Capawe21

Why not?


friedeggtacosalad

None lol


Procrastinator87

My trans ace friend, my genderfluid queer friend, my pan non-binary friend, my two pan genderqueer friends, my trans gay friend, and me, the agender bisexual. And I’ve known all but one of them since I was six. Fate sure is weird sometimes.


ChikoritaLeaf

2 aces, one of whom is also NB. 1 pan & genderqueer person 2 pan cis girls 1 pan NB 1 transbian (other than myself) 1 pan demigirl And I think the rest of my friends are cishet women.


PotatoSalad583

At least three, really depends on where you draw the line between friend and not friend


Point_Brief

I noticed that a majority of mine are. Like over the years I have had like 4 and it might rise as my friend group is starting to really learn more about themselves. Eta: Make that 5 friends. I forgot a newbie who joined my friend group a while ago.


macabrejaguar

Like…10? 15? A decent amount of people I hand around are LGBTQ or ally.


randomstuff_Kevin

6 not included my very pan friend that doesn't know they are.


purpleoryellow

I have like 2. I need more 🙃🙃


kevin642

0×0=0


JustSomeTransTeen

I don't have friends :')


IyanSiwik

Uhhhh I have like 2 cishet friends. Basically if you're friends with me I'm going to assume you're queer until proven otherwise.


Lukeharrison04

Just lost them all today. Was in a GSA and they all expelled me.


jzillaaah

Not enough ☹️


inevergreene

At this point in life I have 0 friends but back when I was social, at least 50+


[deleted]

1 because I basically only have 1 friend.


bobsbountifulburgers

None as far as I know, but I don't have a lot of friends. There are a few of people from my gaming groups that might be. I just don't know them very well, and the subject hasn't come up. And one of them is distractingly attractive, so honestly its kind of hard to start a conversation with him that's not game related


ThatOneGuy1357924680

1 trans, 1 bi (he is slightly homophobic for some reason. It's crap and he knows his problem. It's not that he is homophobic he just is not in the loop as much out of the LGBT. Outside that freaks him out.) 1 questioning (I think they are bi. You will know who you are. You follow my account.) And me, Bi.


Golden_pikachu_944

1 bi and trans friend and 1 pan and non-binary friend


djentkittens

A few. I don’t have a lot of friends either. A few are pansexual, bisexual and two friends of mine are on the asexual spectrum
