KINGSTON, Jamaica - One in four men in the Caribbean describes themselves as bisexual, according to a study.

The study was conducted online by the Caribbean Men’s Internet Survey (CARIMIS) and involved 2,550 men. The findings are preliminary.

Fifteen per cent of those surveyed said they had sex with men but give no labels, such as homosexual or bisexual, to their acts. The results seem to challenge conventional beliefs about the Caribbean society and homosexuality.

Results of the study, which was launched last November, will be given to regional governments.

The project was funded by the UNAIDS, the joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS.
