Is He Gay?
Gaydar (not to be confused with lesbiandar) is a lot more complicated than people make it out to be. There are no surefire signs that make someone gay, but I realized today that I've subconsciously come up with a point system. With enough points, you can safely assume someone is gay. It's officially patented so feel free to use this, but only if you give me credit and royalties. Sign here: __________________________

Well, now that you know, can I just offer that you don't out him? He needs to come out on his own time. But if you're a girl in a relationship with him, RUN. Run straight to the nearest musical with him and take him to that "open-minded" bar. Keep him exposed to those things that are gay so he can start to get more comfortable with who he really is. And keep your eyes open (NOT at those places) for your next man. Because you're about to be single. You deserve better anyway.
