Lurker has question

I've been lurking on this forum for a bit, and notice that many people here have children.

I have a brother -in- law who is gay. He is a wonderful person, but we don't get to see him very often because he lives in CA.

There is a LONG background story, but I'll get to the heart of the matter.
How do I tell DD (age 11) that her uncle is gay?

Her uncle has been living with his partner for about 7 years. DD was only 4 back then, so there wasn't anything to explain. Recently, she has started asking questions about why uncle isn't married, lives with a man, etc.
I have no problems at all with my BIL being gay. I'm just not certain how to explain this to DD in age appropriate terms.

TIA for any feedback! DD loves her uncle alot, so it's really important that I address this as best I can.
