Revue canadienne de santé mentale communautaire / Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health, vol. 30, no 2, p. 99-112.
Intentions : «[T]he present study offers an analysis of differences between gay and bisexual men on a range of self-identified problems in the social, sexual, and psychological spheres. Perceived problems, as indicators of need, could help inform more holistic efforts to improve the health of gay and bisexual men that are sensitive to their specificities.» (p. 101)
Échantillon/Matériau : «From July to December 2010, a survey assessing health-related uses of the Internet was available online in both of Canada’s official languages for completion by lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, and transgender Canadians. [...] Bisexual and gay men filled out 1,673, or 76.5%, of these surveys. For purposes of this study, men were considered bisexual if they indicated, ’in general’, having sex especially with women, as much with women as with men, or mostly with men (n=564). Men were considered gay if they claimed to have sex exclusively with men (n=1,109).» (p. 101-102)

«[B]isexual men were found to be significantly more concerned than gay men with sexual orientation or gender identity problems, issues of behavioural control, and relationship violence but significantly less concerned with sexual orientation discrimination, sexually transmitted infection, mental health, and relationship-finding issues. Greater odds of problems related to coming out, sexual orientation acceptance, sexual identity acceptance, and fearing others will discover one’s sexual orientation were found in bisexual men. [...] Relative to gay men, bisexual men in this study had lower odds of problems finding friends or a long-term relationship but greater odds of relationship violence. [...] Overall, both bisexual and gay men reported an average of over six health-related problems over the past 12 months. In addition, a problem with anxiety, depression, loneliness/isolation, sexual risk practices, or smoking was reported by at least a quarter of bisexual and gay men each.» (p. 106-109)
