New down-lo (gay sex) twist on the Brokeback saga from the Straight Spouse Network support group:
"For members of the El Cerrito-based Straight Spouse Network, the pain of discovering that a longtime partner is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender is all too familiar, says Amity Pierce Buxton, the group's executive director. Nearly every day, she gets several calls from tearful, angry and confused people, looking for answers and support.
''Straight spouses would love their partner just to listen, and not interpret it as anti-gay, and not defend themselves,'' Buxton says. ''Music to their ears is 'I'm sorry, forgive me.' Not 'I'm sorry, I'm gay,' but 'I'm sorry I hurt you, I'm sorry I deceived you.' ''
