Bi men’s health

And, on the topic of bisexual men, from Either / And:

“Stonewall have a chunky new bi & gay men’s health report newly out, which seems to be the counterpart to the pale-blue bi & lesbian women’s report you may remember from about 4 years ago.

Mostly it combines bi and gay data together, however two snippets:

“In the last year, 27 per cent of gay men thought about taking their own life even if they would not do it. This increases to 38 per cent for bisexual men” (p9)

“One in five (21 per cent) gay and bisexual men aged 16 to 19 have deliberately harmed themselves in the last year. One in six (15 per cent) gay and bisexual men aged 16 to 24 have deliberately harmed themselves in the last year. Seven per cent of men in general aged 16 to 24 have ever deliberately harmed themselves.

“Rates of self-harm are also higher among bisexual men; eleven per cent of bisexual men have self-harmed in the last year.” (p11)”
