wet location light switch

I'm putting an outdoor light over the back door of my garage. This will be controlled by a couple of three way switches inside and outside the garage.

All this is on a gfci protected branch. Do I need any special wet location switch on the outside wall?


I'm gonna hurl myself against the wall
because I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all
