Word of the Gay: "Homosocial"

"Homosocial" describes same-sex relationships that are not of a sexual nature. The more modern term for this sort of relationship is bromance.

actually, "homosocial" is used to describe any relationships between/among people of the same sex. could be boss + employee. brothers. nuns.

Heya Queers United, did you see my last comment regarding a recent rally for Same Sex Marriage Bill HB 73 in New Hampshire o.O?

This word is thankfully less scary! WHEW!
What is the term if it is two girls?

Helen I did specify that is a non-sexual relationship, but can also take on borderline sexual in most cases which is bromance.
