The Bisexuality Report

Updated Wednesday 22nd February 2012

According to a new report written by Open University academics, bisexuals endure worse mental health problems and suffer from an equality gap.

In the audio clip below, one of the report's writers Dr Meg Barker, a senior lecturer in Psychology at the OU, tells us more about the report's findings. 

The report was written by Meg Barker; Rebecca Jones, Lecturer, Health & Social Care at the OU; Christina Richards; Helen Bowes-Catton, PhD student in the Psychology Department at The Open University; and Tracy Plowman – all of BiUK, with Jen Yockney, of Bi Community News; and Marcus Morgan, of The Bisexual Index.
