Some time back, not long after I met Stephen, we were walking hand-in-hand to see friends of his. A young girl of about 13 shouted from across the street, 'Excuse me, are you two gay?' We paused and I said, 'Yes, why?' She grinned and replied, 'Aww, how cute.'
I thought that was lovely and we went on our way with big grins on our faces.
