For LGBTQ+ people, recognizing that our mixed orientation marriage is not working and that we are neither happy nor fulfilled can be a painful and difficult journey of uncertain duration.

This lonely path is fraught with anxiety, regret, and grief complicated by family and economic circumstances. There are no easy one size fits all answers, but there is hope for a better life and an authentic future.

Kintsu aims to show you that you are not alone, that healing and forgiveness are possible, and that on the other side of pain lies authenticity, integrity and love. No one can respect you until you respect yourself; no one can take care of you but you. No one can fully love you until you love yourself. Kintsu wants to help you find the beauty in what once seemed broken.

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.
