The big question for me is: WHY did he lose 95% of his friends when he came out as "gay"? Friends don't just stop being friends because of something the person has no control over.
=======================================================================

Yes they do AM. When I came out, I was lucky, 99% of my friends had no problem, and in the 1980s that was rare. One friend though told me he wasn't sure he could handle it. Sure enough he couldn't handle it. He stopped talking to me, and also stopped hanging out with our group of friends.

In the end I came to the conclusion that he wasn't a friend in the first place.
