Even though BW and I are no longer a couple, we remain very close. And I have the utmost respect for the 15+ years of service he has given (and continues to give) to this country, all the while facing the terrifying and very real prospect of termination due to his sexual orientation.
BW isn't planning any sort of big public declaration today. (I was personally hoping he'd show up for work in a rainbow-colored cover, greeting his fellow seamen with a casual "Hey, girl." No such luck.) But he did give me full permission to reveal his face and name to you all, at long last.
And so, without further ado, I give you...
