Another good article and it barely addressed black heterosexuals' and nothing about bisexuals. The few that I have spoken with are scared to disclose because they are immediately shamed because to many it is still "that gay disease." The culture is different for them. Sadly many are not seeking the mental health help that we all need. Pastor David
