Mental health professionals and lay community members of different perspectives work together to facilitate this discussion about mixed-orientation marriages and same-sex marriages and the influences or roles of self-identification and perceptions around sexual attraction or orientation therein. The objective is to facilitate a community conversation that allows for the healthy expression of disagreement in hope of building understanding that will lead to the development of better relationships, greater understanding of those whose perspectives are different from one’s own, and more meaningful outreach to the vulnerable among us.
