ABC News Productions
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Is sexual identity biological or behavioral? Is there a "gay gene"? This ABC News report explores these questions with two families that have gay sons, both of whom were sure of their sexual identity from childhood. Opinions in the scientific community vary on this, including proponents of gay cure programs, and studies are underway to determine if people are born gay or if it is a learned behavior.
