Ian and Dwight - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Ian and Dwight
As I was nearing the end of my jog this morning, I noticed this "For Sale" sign in our subdivision:

Maybe it was because I'd been struck the previous evening by several ads in the new "local content" magazine Tangerine -- otherwise the occasion for numerous shudders of the bitterly mirthful variety -- that feature same-sex "teams," but I immediately wondered whether the photo here features Ian and Dwight and, more importantly, whether potential homebuyers might be wondering the same thing.

Too true! I keep studying the image to see if I can figure out what, exactly, it's trying to convey and for whom. Tucson is a strange place when it comes to matters of diversity in sexual preference. Live-and-let-live more than most locales in the States, but also home to plenty of Fundamentalist sorts, especially in our area.

Maybe they are featuring their same sex partnership to attract the gay clients who are interested in home buying or selling. I think it is a very good idea. There are a lot of gay people and couples out there doing very well, and this team would know this particular characteristic of the market for that specific clientele that other realtors wouldn't have the slightest idea about or be sensitive to. If I were gay, I'd find a gay realtor (with the proper credentials and references of course): save yourself from an excess of right-wing bigot trouble later. Location, location, location!

Good point. I hadn't thought about whether the current owner might be gay. Our small subdivision is home to plenty of right-wing types, but also a number of obvious gay couples. And we're getting more racially diverse, too. I still wonder, though, what this sign is supposed to be saying.

I like their matching tans, hair coloring and style.
