When Tom Clyde gets sick, he hesitates before seeing a doctor. Insurance is not the problem--Clyde has coverage through his employer, L.A. County, where he works in the epidemiology department as an HIV counselor and phlebotomist. The issue is his sexual orientation. "A lot of times I avoid going to a doctor because I feel judged," says Clyde, who is gay. "It's scary enough going to the doctor without having to worry about feeling uncomfortable."

Michelle DuPont sat down in her new primary care doctor's office and was immediately put at ease by medical forms that listed "domestic partner" as a choice for marital status. She filled in the name of her partner of three years, Lisa, and thought to herself how pleasantly progressive the doctor seemed. When Dr. Ronald Axtell asked her if she used birth control, DuPont says she responded, no, "I'm lesbian and therefore pregnancy isn't an issue."
