(Mac) McCloud grew up in Texas, Virginia and California. He graduated
from San Jose State University (BA 1970) and earned his law degree at
the University of California's Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco
Admitted to the bar by examination in three states (Illinois, Louisiana
and Pennsylvania) Mac was a young and very successful federal prosecutor
in the 1970's in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC. As
a celebrated "consumer crusader" he earned the nickname "Marshal
McCloud" and for greater details see his CV and Resume - click here.
In 1980 Mac got a "calling" to move to then booming Houston,
TX (their "Urban Cowboy" boom era) to join the thriving GLBTQ
community in the Montrose section. There he opened and co-founded the
first GLBTQ-friendly hotel in Texas (the Houston Guest House). He
went on to become a community leader and co-publisher and editor for two
leading Gulf Coast and Texas community newspapers.
In 1988 like many others Mac was forced to flee the oil patch due to a
major oil bust there and moved to Southern California. After many
more life adventures (see Mac's CV/Resume
here), in the mid 1990's he started the Bi Men Network (www.bimen.org)
on an informal and local level serving our bi male community.
By the late 1990's Mac could readily see and appreciate the enormous potential
of the worldwide web (the Internet) for sexual minorities and especially
for bisexual and bi-curious men with its anonymity, safety, privacy
and discretion and he took the Bi Men Network online, worldwide.
The Internet, the worldwide web, offered a haven for bisexual and bi-curious
men never known by us before in the "Dark Ages" before it. No
needless fears and worries about arrests, blackmail and ridicule or humiliation.
The Internet promised us community and greater, open communication and
real understanding - with safety and privacy and discretion. Hence, the
founding online in 1998 of our Bi Men Network (www.bimen.org) - a safe
harbor for all bi guys worldwide.
then the Bi Men Network has been a strong and continual presence on the
worldwide web and it soon became the world's largest social and support
organization for bisexual and bi-curious men and our many gay male friends
and supporters (see Bi Men Demographic link). The Bi Men Network
quickly gained the notice and much-needed support of Dr. Fritz Klein (then
the leading world expert on Bisexuality) and his Bisexual Foundation (see
www.bisexual.org). This team effort led to many mutually beneficial joint
efforts and major bi events.
by 2004, Mac was once again solo and we have had no such outside support
in the way of grants or such from non-profits or the like since then.
The Bi Men Network has been solo now for well over a decade.
the 1990's Mac has single-handedly led the Bi Men Network and has been
dedicated to promoting its goal - Be Bi, Be Happy! He says: "Your
life is your oyster. Take life's sands of irritation and make your very
own pearl of great price!" So be bi, be happy! or be gay or
be straight, but be happy! We are indeed men in hot pursuit
of life, liberty and happiness.

and remember that with us "You are NOT alone!' and our men have not
been alone since the 1998. The Dark Ages are long, long gone!
