    Hi, this is my first attempt to say that I am gay. I think nobody knows i am gay. The culture I come from doesn't allow to be gay. But since many years I am trying to find someone around me who is gay as well. But no success yet.
    How I can find reliable & trustworthy gay friends. I am scared to search online as I have heard not many good things.
    Can anyone suggest me a way to find friends?
    Thanks

    It depends a lot on where you live, and how careful you have to be. There are different levels of intolerance in different places, ranging from mild disapproval to murder.

    There are LGBT civil rights organizations active even in places where gay sex can land you in jail, and the people active in those organization are likely to be reliable and trustworthy -- if you have the courage to be seen with them in public. You're much more likely to meet other gay men in cities than in rural areas, and you can improve your chances by getting involved in arts organizations.

    Finding people online is tricky even in places that are not intolerant of gays -- and in a culture where gay relationships risk being against the law, you would have to be especially cautious. Are "dating apps" even allowed where you live?

    I agree....I live in a small town, where being gay really isnt the most popular thing to be. So, most of my friendships have come from online...groups, forums. It is possible to meet some good people....but, you still have to be careful. Anyway, welcome :)
