Homophile is a word widely used by those with same-sex attraction while the term homosexual was still used by psychiatrists and other mental health professionals in the diagnosis of these attractions as a mental disorder. It was widely held by the homophile community that the term homosexual over emphasized the physical aspects of a same-sex relationship and that homophile, -phile coming from the Greek word for love, drew a more accurate picture by having the emphasis on the emotional aspects of such a relationship. With the DSM no longer considering homosexuality as a disorder and the popularization of the word pedophile (meaning one who has sexual attraction to children), the term homosexual has become far more commonly used where the term homophile is rarely, if ever, used at all.
Well known homophile groups include Harry Hay's "The Mattachine Society" for gay men and the unaffiliated "Daughters of Bilitis" for lesbians.

Just like a homophobe is a straight person who hates, dislikes, or is afraid of homosexuals, a homophile is a straight person who loves homosexuals and would fight for their rights. Sometimes these straight people may be confused with homosexuals since they participate in gay pride events and sometimes even attack homophobes. Depending on the person who uses it, a homophile may be an annoying ultra liberal who complains for gays. Or it may simply be a regular person who does not have anything against gays. Normally its the first one since no body likes to be called a homophobe, and nobody likes to be called a homophile. Homophobes and homophiles can be both be assholes, as one group hates a group of people just for being gay. The other group hares a group of people who simply do not want to be gay.
