NEW YORK (AP) -- Fagblogger Po and his friend Jill Potts want to be clear: they are not straight.
In the August issue of AP, the Asbury Park Magazine, the local personality explains that some people misunderstand his close friendship with Potts.
"I understand why people think we're straight," she says. "There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between people. So I get why people have to label it -- how can you be this close without it being sexual?"
In a long article, Po, 39, and Potts converse about their 30 years of friendship and "four-times-a-day text messages."
The two friends say they would have no problem telling the public if they were in a sexual relationship.
"The truth is, if we were straight, we would tell you, because there's nothing wrong with being straight," says Potts.
Says Po: "Something about this relationship feels otherworldly to me, like it was designed by a power and a hand greater than my own. Whatever this friendship is, it's been a very fun ride."
