This research provides empirical proof that transience and viral bridging notions are, respectively, misconceived and overstated. We discovered no proof when it comes to three hypotheses linked to bisexual transience, and small proof for significant viral bridging. Further research is required to evaluate whether these along with other findings can efficiently subscribe to interventions made to decrease biphobia as well as its distal negative health results. We foresee the possibility for these findings to influence interventions designed to increase bisexual acceptance in homosexual and right communities; decrease experiences of stigma, marginalization, and internalized biphobia among bisexual guys; and amplify possibilities for identification disclosure and social help for bisexual males. Just by producing conditions wherein bisexual guys are comprehended, accepted, and respected by culture can we start to ameliorate the debilitating wellness disparities why these guys face.
