  • Every race, every nationality, pretty much every species. Gay marriage was legal here until Europeans landed, same-sex relationships in Native American culture were especially revered.

  • Homosexuality happens in every culture. Although some cultures have tolerated it, not many have considered it the acceptable social way and/or have officialized those relationships.

  • Yes, it occurs in every culture. But as Sharon states, some many culture do not find it acceptable. I have a good friend who is from Puerto Rico who is gay. He had a hard time telling his family. He put up a huge front. He even had a few close female friends who knew his 'secret' act like girlfriends around his family. He finally had the courage to come forward with the truth and while is sisters are ok with it, his mother and brothers do not treat him like a beloved member of the family anymore and openly state their disappointment.
    I find it very sad. He is a very creative, compassionate person and deserves the love of his family.
