One thing I've seen over and over when getting medical care is because some people may "look straight," medical professsionals almost always assume their romantic partner is of the opposite sex when asking basic questions about sexual history, relationship status, etc. This is such an easy fix to make the questions gender neutral and/or just not assume sexual orientation! It seems minor in the moment, but when it happens over and over for a person who is LGBT, it can be frustrating (and is considered a microaggression). I've experienced it many times and I get tired of having to correct people. Just something to think about in your practice! Having said that, in my experiences getting care from multiple doctors and nurses in a medical crisis, most didn't react or care when I would out myself or when my partner was with me. However, one nurse was obviously bothered by the fact that my partner was of the same sex, so much so that he told my partner to wait in the lobby while I was in the ICU while the doctor met with me (I was unaware of what was going on at the time and my partner was pissed and just eventually ignored him and came back). The other nurses apologized for him and called him "old school" which is a nice way of saying homophobic. His behavior was discriminatory, and I don't live in a small town but a metropolitan area well-known for being LGBT friendly. I wonder if I should have filed a complaint about him or could have, but it's too bad to see that this is still happening in the medical field, especially at a time when I was physically/mentally vulnerable and should've had my partner with me. I hope this can be a cautionary tale for folks to not let their personal biases be an excuse to discriminate and provide substandard (unequal) care. Also for the rest of folks, to call it out when colleagues engage in it and do your best to remedy it if you see it happening (rather than just apologize after the fact) because your patients will remember it.
