How to build a house for Gays?

Page 1 of 2  
I own a home building company. My company was just contacted to build a house for a gay couple. Normally the "gay" part would be meaningless as far as my job. The problem occurs because this couple said they want a "gay house", and want it equipped with all the "gay accessories".
Ummmmmm, what the "F" is all of this? I thought gays lived in the same kind of houses as normal people. And what are these accessories and what are they used for?
Aside from pink siding, I can't imagine what else to do to the house to make it look gay. other than putting a cock weather vane on the house, and I dont mean a rooster.

His and his towel racks. (joking)
(without being gay, "..not that there is anything wrong with that" - Seinfeld) Separate bathroom sinks, large closets (possibly separated also) w/ shoe racks. Probably be more of a open, trendy decor (possibly pastel color shades).
I'd start with all the special requests couples usually get into arguments over.
Interesting post.

If this isn't a real question, it sure could be. I have seen at least one article in home-decorating magazines about a reno for a two-man household.
Picture a two-income *childless* couple who do a lot of dinner-party and/or cocktail-party entertaining. That means a kitchen and dining room suitable for big entertaining. Also the ensuite bath could be more open to the bedroom; an open shower, sink area open to the bedroom, that kind of thing. Privacy is less of a concern than in a traditional family home.
Yeah, the bidet's a good idea. Also: a urinal. Seriously. Several of the high-end home plumbing lines include urinals. Ask your supplier who's buying them.
Probably no rec/rumpus room but maybe a home office and maybe a home gym. *Maybe* a "games" room but I doubt they'd expect you to guess their tastes for that one.
It's a stereotype but you mind find their decorating tastes are more modern/euro/urban than country-style. But ask.
Of course, they're as likely to be as mindful of resale value as anyone, so they might not want things TOO weird. On the other hand I'm sure you deal with a lot of families who are in complete denial about ever wanting to resell their home.

I don't know about fabulous, but a big pickup line in gay bars is supposed to be, "May I push in your stool?"

I was going to suggest extra-large closets, but I guess it's too late for that.
