So, this label thing is a struggle, I am currently going with either just name or friend + name.

Like others said, if the person being introduced knows me well enough, then they know I have 2 lovers, so they only the need the name. If they don't know then "friend" will suffice.
I would never refer to some one I love as "just a friend", I would find that highly insulting and demeaning of our relationship to be "just a friend".~ I wouldn't mind calling them BOTH "my friend and lover".~
