I can't speak for all gays, but I really appreciate LGBT friendly straight people. My longest, closest relationship has been with a straight woman. Jobs, partners, therapists have come and gone, but we've stayed together through thick and thin. I took my recently widowed sister on a cruise and we went to a "Friends of Dorothy" luncheon. Well, that was the last I saw of her-- off with the boys on excursions, line dancing, classes. SI also know straight guys that are very lesbian-friendly. They like having a woman friend with no agenda. o, you might look for a "Friends of Dorothy" gathering on a HAL or Norwegian cruise and just go and mingle.
