Steven Bell and Blaire Wendel’s webseries about two roommates in New York’s “third-coolest borough,” has released a new episode that explores what its like to come out to your gay best friend.

The Huffington Post reports:

"My favorite part about working on this episode was dealing with what it's like for a person to come out to another gay person," Bell told The Huffington Post. "Coming out to your family is tough, but coming out to your gay best friend can be even tougher. There can be weird feelings of, 'I thought I knew you!' and 'Being gay was supposed to be my thing!' and playing with this new dynamic between the characters is creating some really exciting possibilities for future episodes."

  1. It's true. My best friend all through school and I didn't come out to each other until we went off to different colleges for a couple of years. Even then it only happened because I stumbled upon his stash of porn. Even though one would think that a gay person coming out to another gay person would be easy, it wasn't. It was very awkward. Of course it was also Mississippi in the 80's when everything associated with being gay was weird, hard and awkward, even for gay people. I hope things would be easier now.

  2. After coming out in High School, I started having a sneaking suspicion that one of my friends was also gay. I use to do little chants in my head "please don't be gay, Please don't be gay" because I really didn't want to deal with his coming out too. But, I was also in my selfish teenage years.
