I am a gay male nurse and my sexual orientation hasn't impacted my career, and I am "out" to my coworkers. I'm good friends with most of the unit and occasionally a physician or another nurse will ask me about gay dating and such, etc.  Everyone has been respectful in my experience.

You've got to be kidding? I guess my hopes are dashed. 😢

Don't know what you mean by that.

I am happy to say as a female nurse with a female partner I have never experienced discrimination at my  hospital. I am the only lesbian that I know of other than one woman who works in staffing but we do have a lot of gay male nurses. I have many friends at work and feel respected and for this I am super grateful.

I don’t usually discuss my sexuality with patients unless I become particularly close with them. They are usually surprised to learn I am gay (maybe because I look feminine, not really sure) but I have never had a bad reaction... not even from little old patients from conservative countries! I think when people learn you are gay after you took good care of them it may change their perspective if they were previously prejudiced... not sure but I hope so!
