Bi Men: Coming Out (Every Which Way)

edited by Ron J. Suresha & Pete Chvany

A 2006 Lambda Literary Award finalist for excellence in bisexual literature

“Helped open my eyes to a world that, for me, is difficult to understand, and it will help me further empathize with the struggles my clients are facing in regards to defining their own sexuality. . . . Easy to read for the clinician and the non-clinician alike and can be given to those struggling with their sexuality at almost any age. . . . A BOOK EVERY CLINICIAN SHOULD READ.”

“The collection is structured in sections that model the actual coming out process: self-discovery; revelation of self to spouse and family; connecting with the community; and self-affirmation. . . . A BROAD CROSS-SECTION OF THE MALE BISEXUAL EXPERIENCE.”

The Gay & Lesbian Review


A MOVING AND PIONEERING CELEBRATION OF THE MALE BISEXUAL SELF that addresses biphobia in our society. . . . Confronts head-on the limiting views that bisexuality is a transitional phase or sexual evolution or a simple refusal to accept being either homosexual or straight. . . . EXPLORES WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BISEXUAL IN TODAY’S MONOSEXUALLY ORIENTED SOCIETY. . . . Bisexual and bi-curious men will find comfort and camaraderie in these stories about coming out, its impact on family and marriage, evolving perspectives on bisexuals within the LGBT community, and the building of acceptance and affirmation for bisexuality and polyamory



In my work as a psychotherapist in private practice for over twenty-five years I have come to believe that bisexuality, though often latent, is far more prevalent than ever believed with truly homo- and hetero-oriented people being small minorities at opposite ends of a long spectrum. Sexual orientation is more fluid than we like to think and is much more complex than simple genital arousal. THIS BRAVE ANTHOLOGY PRESENTS BISEXUALITY IN DAZZLING ARRAY, with many diverse points of view well articulated.
