Ask the Aunties, honey! (PinkNews)

PinkNews brings you Ask the Aunties, where our fabulous queer agony aunts answer your dilemmas.

From dating to telling your pals your pronouns, no dilemma is left unanswered.

Lee Gray, Karnage Kills and Rhys Hollis are the queer agony aunts you always wanted.

The last episode saw the aunties answer a concerned message from a gay man who has been in a secret on/off relationship with his guy friend from school and can’t decide if he should stay in the closet for him or said bye bye. You can watch the aunties’ reactions here.

In this episode, the aunties answer a dilemma sent in from a worried mother who thinks her son might be gay.

Here’s her dilemma:

Dear aunties,

I think my son might be gay—he never seems very interested in girls and he’s started hanging out with one of his boy mates lots lately.

He’s not majorly into sports and he’s not a very macho guy but I also don’t want to stereotype him.

I think he might be gay, how can I let him know I support him without forcing him to come out?

Lee Gray is a YouTuber and part-time podcaster with Karnage Kills – together they produce a podcast about black queer men’s experiences living and dating in London, called Wolves in the City.
