Homosexuality and Noahides

How strict is the Noahide Law regarding the prohibition of homosexuality? I heard form various Jewish sources that the only thing that is strictly forbidden is the actual sexual intercourse between men. So what about a love relationship between two men that does not involves sexual intercourse? Could it be tolerated in Noahide Law?


Noahide World Center

In response to the spiritual and value-driven demand for the word of God to be disseminated by the nation of Israel to all of mankind, we have established “Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center” in Jerusalem. We are in constant contact with many people all over the world who have a strong desire to learn the words of God.
