Speak Up With Jimmy: The Special Friendships Between Straight Women and Gay Men

By: Jimmy Nguyen

Why do women so often have strong friendships with gay men? Actress/writer Erin Quill (original Broadway cast of Avenue Q; The Mikado Project) joins me to talk about these special relationships. Erin discusses her Fairy Princess Diaries blog, and the advice she gives to straight women about having gay male friends. Erin also reveals life lessons she has learned from gay men:

  • compassion
  • how to throw a punch
  • how to listen
  • showing up when your friends are sick and most need you.

Watch this conversation to remember what it means to be truly be a friend.
