Worldwide gay and lesbian rights information:

The following website lists most countries in the world, the status of their laws regarding same-sex behavior, and the minimum age of consent. This data is only as reliable as the source material used by the webmaster. If you are planning to be sexually active with a same-sex partner, it would be wise for you to verify the information. See Wikipedia's "LGBT rights by country or territory" at: http://en.wikipedia.org/

Bisexual organizations:

Most GLBT groups are broadly based, and support gays, lesbians, transsexuals and bisexuals. We found a few groups and one listing that focus on bisexuality:

bullet American Institute of Bisexuality "... encourages, supports and assists research and education about bisexuality, through programs likely to make a material difference and enhance public knowledge, awareness and understanding about bisexuality." It is a professional association founded by Dr. Fritz Klein in 1998 to:

celebrated, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression. Because bisexuals today are still misunderstood, marginalized and discriminated against, the BRC is
committed to providing support to the bisexual community and raising public awareness about bisexuality and bisexual people."

Support group for straight/homosexual Marriages:

The Straight Spouse Network (SSN) is a support group for the straight spouse in marriages in which the other spouse is gay or lesbian. They have five goals: 1. to offer caring support in a group context; 2. to help women and men adjust to change; 3. to deal with negative emotions; 4. to enhance feelings of worth and personal identity; 5. to find positive self-image and new direction. They are also establishing an outreach program for couples who have recently begun facing the fact that only one of them is straight, and are developing an educational program to promote better understanding of homosexuality. See: http://www.straightspouse.org/

Total Mortgage Services® publishes "The Total Guide: Home Buying for Same Sex Couples" The guide's introduction states:

"Purchasing a home is a major undertaking for any couple, but same-sex couples must be especially diligent to make sure their investment and their interests are protected.  This is due in part to inconsistent marriage laws in America and because of varying laws handling the disposition of a property with multiple owners.  Purchasing a home with your partner is an exciting time in both of your lives, but it is absolutely imperative that you plan ahead so that you can avoid potentially serious financial and emotional stress in the future."
