Good idea or recipe for disaster?

I know a boy that I'm about 99% sure is gay. Let's call him cute little gay boy or CLGB. He's not even out yet to himself. Everything about him set off my gaydar and the more I get to know him, the more I am convinced he's gay.

Once I took him to a porn shop (with some other people...ugh, long story) and I saw him peeking at some postcards with naked men all over them. I also saw him looking at some very fabulous underwear and a bunch of other stuff that straight boys would just not be interested in. There were lots of pictures of boobs. No interest.

He's also made a lot of comments about not being interested in women or the female body. One day he said something about who he's interested in to the effect of "I don't really know who it is or who I like. Sometimes I feel like I have all these secrets, even from myself and it's going to take a special person to unlock them..." Hmm.

Anyways. I'm trying to get a group of people together to go to St. Louis Pride this summer and do some volunteer work for Starbucks. This makes it way easier to get us all off work!

Should I invite him? I'm not really sure if he'd come, but I kind of think so. Is this even a good idea or is it a recipe for disaster? Mostly I think he's started to maybe consider that he might be gay and being surrounded by a lot of gay people might be good for him...or maybe just traumatic.
