'Sir' Elton's gay partner is no 'Lady'!

'Sir' Elton's gay partner is no 'Lady'! Washington | December 23, 2005 7:11:25 PM IST

Sir Elton John and his longtime partner David Furnish may have finally united in a civil ceremony on Dec 21, but the latter will not be referred to as a Lady, even though his partner is a Knight, according to etiquette authority Debrett's.

In Britain, it is customary for wives of knights of the realm to take the title of Lady in place of Mrs, but the rule will not extend to gay civil unions, which became legal in the UK this week.

"Even though they are married, people should still address him as Mr David Furnish," a spokesman for Debrett's, publishers of Peerage And Baronetage was quoted by Contactmusic,as saying.

Meanwhile Elton's close pal Liz Hurley was the cynosure of all eyes at the reception ceremony of the couple, in her flowing white dress with a matching fur stole complemented by drop arrings and a sparkling diamond necklace. (ANI)

That's no Lady, that's Elton's wife.

Isn't it a little cheeky to assume that David would be the Lady of the pair?

Debrett's may not refer to David Furnish as "Lady John"...but I will from now on.

I can't even believe we're having this conversation - it's sad.

Same-sex attraction disorder is a mental illness. Confusion over "married" men's titles only proves it.

Here's a MUCH better compromise:

Gaydy.
