I think at least for now this qualifies under friends and family. The fact you are gay for the most part has very little bearing on it. My next question is also probably one you have been waiting for, "Are you attracted to him, romantically?" And if so, is he aware of this? If not, does he think he might be attracted to you, since you are friends? This can be a very confusing question for many of us. It's something you may ask him, if you are comfortable asking. Don't get me wrong, I see a person sexuality as having nothing to do with friendships, but these are circumstances that are far from ordinary, when you are talking about an abused male. Our psycological make up is quite different from that of a woman when dealing with sexual abuse, especially when a male is abused by another male. We may get answers and can see the logic, but we still, deep down, have doubts and hangups. Personally, I'd have you for a friend, gay or straight, you are a great support. Keep up the good work.
