Evan and Addison Are Domestic Partners

New York residents Evan and Addison (left and right) recently became domestic partners. Our editor sat down with them to talk about growing up gay in Texas, Devo and how things get slippery…

So, how did you guys meet, first of all?

Addison Smith: We met on MySpace… I had just signed up for a MySpace account.

Evan Hoyt: And so did I. I discovered there was an advanced search feature which you could search by eye color, hair color, who likes Devo?

AS: ‘Who likes Devo’!?

EH: I searched by how many people in Manhattan were six foot four. Not male, not female, not gay.


EH: Just randomly. I was just like, “How many other people are as tall I am?” And so Addison came up at the top of the list. It didn’t say anything about him being gay – the only thing it said was –

AS: Job. It said “gay philanthropy”. Right?

EH: I think it said “queer philanthropy” and I was like, “Huh?” So I emailed him and said, “Hi there, Texas boy. I think I have a stranger crush on you.” Then we emailed back and forth – because I was in Texas at the time for a little sabbatical.

You guys are both from Texas?

EH: Yes. So, I was in Texas with some time on my hands. And we started corresponding for a couple of months, on and off – and then I came back.

AS: I showed pictures of you to my friends and my family and said, “Look, my future ex-husband just wrote me”. I never really thought that I would meet you, which is really cool.

EH: Yeah.

AS: But I called you my “future ex-husband,” which now I hope never happens!

EH: Me too…

EH: So, I came back and met him the first week of January, 2006 and we shook hands at the end of our date. [Laughs] And then made out from 8th avenue to 7th avenue…

AS: That was our next date. I thought you were kind of straight or had some issue, like a small weiner or something.

      At first I thought this was an article about gay brothers. They look related.

      Hate to burst their pink bubble, but domestic partnership isn’t marriage. Not even close.

      That post was full of warm fuzzies. It reminds me that I have the chance of meeting a guy and settling down.

      Queerty should have more posts like this. It compliments the biting sarcasm and caustic wit that I’ve grown to love quite nicely.

      What a snoozefest. I bet that you everything in their apartment is in neutral tones.

      they are friends of mine. they are genuinely that sweet, that funny, and that GAY. they are painfully lovable. and…the fact that they are so young and in a committed relationship is lovely to me, because i’m young and i married my partner in massachusetts in 2005 and it’s nice to feel like we’re not alone in going through it all.

      I don’t think that’s a regular old neutral-toned hand towel over the stove, it appears to be a handmade, one-of-a-kind, bright yellow John Deere logo apron with a ruffled hem… and I bet EH looks *HOT* in it. xoxo

      This should be forced reading for the ChristiaNazis, so they can see how sinful and hedonistic this lifestyle really is… YAWN…
