Straight Spouse Awareness & Community Advocacy
South Florida Connects (SFC) provides straight spouse awareness expertise to the South Florida Community and beyond. SFC provides information to distressed men and women who find themselves unknowingly in a relationship with a secretly gay person. SFC specializes in straight spouse peer support for information, education, validation and affirmation. Debbie, the SFC CEO, was recently interviewed on radio WAVS 1170am, a popular Caribbean- American station in South Florida. Below is a transcript from the radio interview.
1. Who is a straight spouse?
You are a straight spouse if you are a heterosexual person who is, or was in a relationship, is married to, separated or divorced from someone who is LGBT, (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender.) Transgender may include but is not limited to transsexuals, cross-dressers, or individuals who have had a sex change. Some people are straight spouses by choice, but most straight spouses unknowingly dated or married someone who is secretly gay.
