I am a rainbow flag waving, card carrying queer, reporting for duty. Glad you could join us. A free toaster oven if you can refer a friend. (Okay, that last part was an Ellen joke.)

My Gay-dar sucks.  Anyone and everyone could be gay or not to me, I can never tell.  Rainbow-gal here.  I like to think I'm evenly distributed in my orientation to both genders.  I'll look into a rainbow smiley to add to our smiley list.

Ogyen.

There is no legal marriage or civil unions where I live.  Even after making my partner my official point of contact and giving him medical and legal power of attorney, medical workers have tried to deny him access to me on two different occasions when I was hospitalized, because they didn't recognize him as my next of kin.

My partner and I have the same last name... we changed our names after the commitment ceremony. Anyway, we are both heavy set fellows, so everyone assumes we are brothers. This has (sadly) helped to circumvent some of those hospital situations re: next of kin. On the other hand, it has made crossing over the US-Canadian border more difficult. On the Canadian side, the border patrol tries to prove to us just how accepting they are, so a lot of extra time listening as officers describe their favorite Ellen episode. On the US side, the border patrol always asks, "So, are you guys brothers?" When we respond, "No, we're partners"... there begins the interrogation, and the inspection. I told my partner last time we crossed the border, "If they ask if we are brothers, just say YES!"
