Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: The down-low truth Dear Morning Show, I am in a really complicated situation. I have a male friend that I am extremely close to, but I have always questioned his sexuality. Recently my family member (who is openly gay) told me that my friend is indeed homosexual. My friend is a guy who even though he hangs out with me and my (female) friends being the only guy, has always tried to act as if he was just this big ladies man. He gets so angry anytime anything about gay men is mentioned. It makes me feel as if he is truthfully lying because tendencies are there. His family members who are very manly (almost thuggish) men would literally kill him if they suspected anything. My question is as his friend should I tell him that people know about his sexuality, or should I just stay out of it and hope he is ok dealing with it?
