No matter how many times I do it, there is always that silent moment after I first mention my partner to a colleague; that millisecond where I’m holding my breath and bracing for their reaction to my “outing”. These people have known me in one way but now I am revealing an entirely new dimension of myself, one that may change the way they view, relate and interact with me.
