SCIENTISTS: Not A Single Gene for Gay

A genetic analysis of almost half a million people has concluded there is no single “gay gene”.

The study, published in Science, used data from the UK Biobank and 23andMe, and found some genetic variants associated with same-sex relationships.

But genetic factors accounted for, at most, 25% of same-sex behaviour.

Advocacy group GLAAD said the study confirmed “no conclusive degree to which nature or nurture influenced how a gay or lesbian person behaves.”
