Understanding Personal ExperiencesNSW Women Partners of Bisexual Men

We’re writing a book … this time telling men’s experiences.  

The book will be a series of stories from men who have experienced coming out as gay from a heterosexual/straight relationship, or men who are still in relationships with women and may be having sex with men or questioning their sexuality. If this describes your situation and you live in NSW or lived in NSW at the time, we’d like to talk with you.

It’s a joint project with Women Partners of Bisexual Men Service and GAMMA and the men who are interviewed will be telling their story, in their own words.

Your story will be confidential and anonymous.

If you agree to be interviewed, please call us on 1800 787 887, 02 9560 3011 or email [email protected]

The Good Weekend’s national media in August 2008 brought a deluge of enquiries from new women. Thank you to all the wonderful women who met with journalist Greg Bearup. By opening up about their own experiences many women have been able to find information and support for themselves and their families. Contact Us if you’ve not seen the article, and we’ll send it to you.

Back in 2010 The Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne Age and Brisbane Times published ‘The Secret Lives of Us’. Not every partner has been living a secret life, but this article may be of interest to women who do find their partner is living a double life.

The Australian Women’s Weekly wrote about ‘When the Other Woman is a Man’. Thank you again to the lovely women who shared their experiences with journalist Jordan Baker in the July 2010 edition of the Women’s Weekly.
