My work is having a party/cookout this weekend. I am not out at all to them, as in South Carolina a person can be fired simply because he or she is a "homosexual." This leads to a simple question:
Should a gay man bring his boyfriend to the work party?
How would he introduce him? My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 17 months, so I wouldn't want to simply say he is my friend. I'd be scared to say he is my boyfriend, however. That would "out" me and put my job in jeopardy. It really is difficult being gay in our society sometimes. If Congress would just pass ENDA already we wouldn't have to be worried about stuff like this. What do you think?
