Well done for 12 years btw, that sounds like a lifetime to me: P ocherdraco: I'm more comfortable talking about guys and "gay stuff" with my female friends than the male ones, and have occasionally said things such as "ooh, he's fit! A couple of my more crazy friends will actually go up to guys and ask them right out if they are gay or not, which leads to endless embrassment! Thanks for the advice though, I'll try and do a bit more of this: I live in a medium-sized town not too far from various larger towns and cities with gay scenes.

I know a few local gay people and have a few gay friends from old jobs, school, etc. I'll certainly try and build up some more contacts though and see how it goes. I'm not really an activities-type guy although I'm sure it won't do any harm to make some enquiries about such things in the local area. Great advice about asking people for a date after "bedroom things" - don't know why I've never thought of this before.
I'm probably being too presumptious by assuming they were drunk and wanted a one-nighter.

I will be sure to suggest a night out to a few friends for a bit of practice. Thanks for the advice. I think I may have taught myself to watch what I say in public in fear of being homophobically bullied, etc. I'm glad to say I've never had any trouble and the places I hang out tend to be relatively gay-friendly obviously barring one or two people here and there, like you no doubt get everywhere.
Maybe I should try slipping subtle hints into conversations as you say. In regards to a single earring, I can't do that unfortunately as I have stretched lobes on both ears. Although, I have recently bought a couple of button badges that are symbolising "gay". One badge is two male-shaped figures like you'd see on some male toilet doors standing together, and the other is a female-shaped figure behind the standard red "no entry" type sign.
I have a small handful of gay friends in your same position and my heart goes out to you; unless you live in a city with a large gay population, it's a lot harder to meet people if you're not into the stereotypical gay scene, and even harder if you don't naturally set off gaydar.
All my friends have done is use online dating services, and they sometimes go to the gay clubs anyway. This works out alright for them; not great, but alright. It gets you out there. An option is moving in with gay flatmates who then know other gay people. I think lesbians in the U.

People do use how you dress, talk and act as shorthand for who you are. This means two things 1 flirting more; 2 being firm and upfront about what you want. If you are a one guy guy, then let them know from the beginning and stick to your guns. People who just want sex are gonna go for it with you, so be firm. I was very into the gay 'scene' - clubbing, parties, lots of gay friends, lots of hook-ups, difficulty finding a long term boyfriend.
My boyfriend was more like you - into metal, mostly str8 friends, not really into the gay scene, lots of surprised reactions when he came out to people. We met online and were wildly sexually attracted to each other. Got to know each other better, found that we in addition to the sexual chemistry, we got along great, so we moved in together within the year. Still happily coupled a year after that. I think gay dating and maybe all dating is a numbers game.
You need to go through a lot of folks before you find a match. So, get online and keep looking. Set-up lunches, dinners, hook-ups, or shared activities with guys you find online until you meet one you click with. Bluntly said, I see a lot of internalized homophobia in your post and it is going to inhibit your goal to meet people. In my experience, gay and lesbian people find other gay people in gay contexts and social venues. The world at large is not a great place to find a lover, though of course it happens. But I wouldn't want to count on it.
