What is it that attracts gay men and some straight women into such intense friendships? Is it genetic? Or is it a pheromone? Or do the women have a problem with relationships with straight men?
Gay Star News talks to Monica Davidson, the creator of a new film about the 'fag hag' called Handbag.
Davidson discovered that she is one link in four generations of women in her family who befriend gay men and her film explores these heartwarming friendships and tests out some theories on what is the source of this special relationship.
