A new study of Caribbean men who have sex with men (MSM) has found that currently one in four identify themselves as bisexual.

The results are from the largest ever survey targeting MSM populations around the Caribbean, including 3566 men from 33 territories.

“We have a fair population in the Caribbean that identify as bisexual. Across the entire sample… about 20 to 23 percent say they are bisexual,” facilitator of the study, Ernest Massiah told the The Antigua Observer.

The survey also revealed that 15 percent of the men did not label themselves in any category.

According to Massiah, the most disturbing aspect of the study involves the amount of physical and verbal abuse still faced by the MSM population in their home countries.

UNAIDS Caribbean have stated that results of the survey are being finalised and will be released in October.
