On Giving Tuesday, December 3, the Straight Spouse Network kicked off our year-end fundraising campaign. We raised $3,600 towards our $20,000 goal, and are grateful to all our donors for helping us continue to aid straight spouses in need. We ask for your help to spread the word to help us meet our goal. Learn more >>>
Straight Spouse Voices is the official podcast of the Straight Spouse Network. In our podcasts, heterosexual men and women who are or were married to, or partners of, LGBTQ persons, share their experiences in conversations with host Kristin Kalbli, who is herself a straight spouse. The stories and perspectives are many and diverse. Topics include the after effects when spouse comes out, staying in a mixed orientation marriage, coping with a spouse who remains closeted or in denial, the challenges of being married to a transgender person, navigating family relationships after disclosure, how homophobia affects us, living our best lives going forward, unique divorce and parenting issues, how our spiritual and religious beliefs are affected, cultural attitudes toward straight spouses, handling grief and finding the strength to heal.
