Does the gay gene run.. *edit* (Another question)

In your family? I'm genuinely curious how many people are or have a gay/lesbian/transgender/bi-sexual family member. Also, do you think its genetic?

My husband has two awesome gay uncles who have eleven straight siblings. I don't *think* I have anyone on my side of the family who is.


*EDIT*
If you are, have a child, family member or friend who is gay, how early did you start feeling different or seeing a difference in their sexuality choices?

Not here. IM wondering if it's not a gene but more nature vs nurture type thing

My aunt is gay.
But that's it aside from myself.
I do not believe there is a gay gene.

I honestly can't think of a gay family member. Our family is pretty accepting too, so I think if I had one, they wouldn't keep it a secret.

I do not believe it's purely genetic. There are plenty of identical twins where one is straight and one is gay that disproves the purely genetic link imo.

I have an aunt that is gay.

My bil is gay. My dh & his other brother are far from it. So, I'm not sure if it's genetic.

I have a gay (step) brother neither of the other 2 are and his uncle isn't.
I can't say I have ever thought about it at all

Do you believe it's circumstantial?

I don't have any gay family members. My best friend who is gay has a gay uncle.

My grandmother was gay so was my aunt. I have a very small family. My mother was the only straight member. I feel that there is no such thing as the gay gene. Homosexuality is a learned behavior based on many factors. IMO.
