provide reperative therapy. This involves an attempt to convert persons
with a homosexual or bisexual orientation to heterosexuality.

This therapy has been shown to have a zero or very near zero success
rate, and has led to serious depression, suicidal ideation and completed
suicides among clients.

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:

bulletAmerican 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:
bullet Educate the general public, civic and professional organizations on bisexuality and the needs and concerns of bisexually oriented people;
bullet Promote and fund research on bisexuality; and
bullet Sponsor and organize conferences, public forums, panels, social and cultural activities that increase understanding about bisexuality.
bullet The Australian Bisexual Network has a website that lists many international groups. See:
bullet Bisexual Resource Center has a massive list of bisexual resources and links at: Their mission "... envisions a world where love is
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."
bullet is "... a project designed to introduce our community to the world. With this site, they hope to bring faces and voices of the bi community to the world, share accurate information, answer questions, and provide resources for further learning. See:

Support group for straight/homosexual Marriages:

The Straight Spouse Network (SSN) is a support group for the straight spouse in those 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:
