Straight spouses are married, divorced, or separated partners who have found themselves in mixed sexual orientation marriages.

Some of us learned the truth through the coming out of our LGBT partners.  Some of us found out through accidental discovery. Some of us lost our best friend, while others of us aren’t sure if we were ever truly loved at all.

All of us were heartbroken.

Kintsu is dedicated to helping you find your unique beauty in the broken, to create healing and growth from pain so you emerge from the fire stronger, more resilient... and unbreakable.

The Kintsu Project ("KP") is organized exclusively for charitable, training, and educational purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or any corresponding section of any future federal tax code.

KP serves as a supportive resource for anyone whose life has been negatively affected by societal, religious, familial, or internalized homophobia that results in mixed-orientation marriages. We serve straight spouses, their formerly closeted LGBTQIA partners, their families, and interested helping professionals.


KP is straight spouse and LGBTQIA affirmative. We believe every person deserves to live an open and authentic life. To that end, KP provides programs and services to help move individuals from discovery to recovery.
