Whatever minority you are in, (and you may belong to more than one minority) do not assume that because others are the same as you, that they are good people.
As lovely as it is, scenery is not particularly helpful if you want to meet like-minded people.
So how do you meet other gay people in such a rural county? Pubs are popular places to meet other people, probably due to the ability to pop on a pair of beer spectacles if you need to.
The annual Aldeburgh Festival, founded by Benjamin Britten, his partner Peter Pears and Eric Crozier, is very popular with the gay classical music loving crowd.
If you are interested in health you can bet that your local fitness club boasts plenty of gay boys pumping iron ready for the summer.
Another good way to meet other gay people when you live in a rural area is over the net.
There are several popular gay websites such as Gaydar (which has over 1000 users in Suffolk , many thousands more in the bordering counties and is free to use) and Out In The UK which has social groups in the area.
The best thing you can do for him is to just boost his confidence and make sure he doesn't feel 'guilty' or 'ashamed' or being gay. Im want to know any gay pub in colchester, wanna meet people here.

I'm 16, and already a member of Outreach, but really..IS there to do for someone of my age who lives out in the countryside? I am not advertising myself lol, I am just saying that I am not the only one who feels like this: that there is no real way to meet other young gay people apart from by chance and going to a youth group (which not many people go to because it's not as well known as it should be [thanks to schools being afraid of putting up posters of it]).
There are many other UK-wide gay societies that either have a base in Suffolk or have outings in our county, such as the Gay Outdoors Club which has a Suffolk group.
