We know that more and more people are identifying as bisexual – estimates vary from around 22,000 to over 1 million people in the UK. We also know that bisexual people’s lived experiences are often different from those of either lesbians, gay men, or heterosexual people. However, despite this, there is very little psychological research that has specifically explored bisexual people’s lives, friendships, and relationships. Therefore, in this project we sought to find out more about bisexual people’s experiences of bisexuality and relationships.

The researchers involved in the project are:
• Nikki Hayfield - a Senior Lecturer in Social Psychology at the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol
