Your Support Matters


Headline in sky











163 Straight Spouse Network Support Group Facilitators and Support Contacts are on call all day, every day. They are passionate volunteers dedicated to helping other Straight Spouses. From April to July, 2017 we had 729 requests for support from 47 States, 5 Canadian provinces and 21 foreign countries. Currently, an estimated 135,000 people visit our website each year. 


With a new Executive Director at our helm, we are charging ahead to meet our challenges. Our interim Director is moving into a position that will strengthen our support system. The entire Staff is working hard to keep up with the increased numbers we've been seeing in the past three years. We're steadily picking up more recognition through social media. Our goals are to help Straight Spouses, and to help society understand the serious nature of the Straight Spouse Experience.  

Even though the Straight Spouse phenomenon is gaining more attention in the media, there are still people whose beliefs and homophobia are a dangerous influence, including those who are fighting  against same-sex marriage. As long as LGBTQ people are suppressed, some will continue to marry and create more Straight Spouses. We need to be there for them and we need to continue being advocates for change. We need funds to continue our operations and to move forward. 

Maybe one day we will no longer need to ask for help. But as long as the fight is still on, we need you as much as all the Straight Spouses out there need us. So if you can donate, please do! And please, all of you, talk about the Straight Spouse Network to family, friends, business associates and even strangers whenever you have the opportunity. If we can educate the general public about the realities of the Straight Spouse Experience, we can put a halt to a society’s underlying acceptance of LGBTQ people marrying straight people. Help the victims. End the trend. Support the Straight Spouse Network.

"When I realized my husband was gay, time stopped, my heart stopped, life as I knew it was over. Despair was destroying my will to go on. And then I found the Straight Spouse Network, I woke up from the bad dream. All the voices in my head became real people sharing the same voice...." L.E.
