If you are here, you may be a Straight Partner who has just discovered your partner is lesbian, gay or bisexual. You might be feeling many intense and conflicting emotions. You may be only a few days removed from discovery or disclosure, or you may be a few years out. No matter where you are in your journey, OurPath has created this collection of books, articles, blogs, videos and alternative podcasts to help you on your path. (For our proprietary podcast and blog content, refer to the Our Voices section of this site.)

Resources for Straight Partners focuses on information and stories that speak to the Straight Partner experience. There are several books written from various Straight Partner perspectives, as well as resources to help move you through shock, grief, trauma and loss, and toward a fulfilling new life.
