Studies have revealed several mental health problems among sexual minorities. However, there are few studies that focus on bisexual people thus there is a lack of understanding.
This presentation will focus on the narrative of bisexuals regarding their difficulties in life and mental health.
Analysis of narratives revealed situation of bisexual people is hard to be understood by other sexual minorities in addition to prejudice from the sexual majorities. As a result, it is difficult for them to confide their sexuality in the sexual minority community. Additionally, bisexual people are subject to prejudices based on sexual orientation binarism.
