I only have 1 male friend and he is gay, so dh isn't too worried about me hanging out with him alone. But I have to admit that I don't think I would be really happy with him hanging out with a women, if I wasn't also part of the friendship. He does have some female friends, but he has included me in those friendships. Of course they are married, so we usually do couples outings. Maybe you could include your dh in those friendships? Obviously, he won't have as close a relationship with your old friends just due to the time you've known them, but it might just put his mind at ease and still allow you to keep your male friends. Maybe even once he gets to know them better he wouldn't feel threatened by them. Just an idea.
