Since 1978, the "DGSS Institute" has been providing full-time, seven-days-a-week professional counseling not exclusively, but largely for gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. Its full German name is "Institut für Lebens- und Sexualberatung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Sozialwissenschaftliche Sexualforschung (DGSS)", which may explain why its shortened form "DGSS-Institut" became quickly popular in Germany. In plain English, we are the gay counseling institute attached to the renowned "German Society for Social Scientific Sexuality Research" (short:   DGSS). Hence we can effectively base our counseling on sound sexological, psychological, sociological, and, if and when required, medical, knowledge: our counselors are openly gay professionals from those fields. Our work has been described in a number of books and other technical publications, including doctoral theses. Since 1983, AIDS- and HIV-counseling, including testing, is also being provided. By now, more than 33,000 clients have received counseling.

Many people need at some time in their lives professional help. So may you. Being gay or lesbian, or bi, does not in any way make you a less valuable, less lovable, less able person. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Ever. Whatever your questions or problems may be: why not try us for FREE help?zum Anfang
