While several studies have attempted to prove the existence of a ‘gay gene’, the fact is that there is no reputable scientific evidence that anyone is born gay.  In an April 2015 (UK) Guardian Observer report, David Spiegelhalter presents the findings of his book Sex By Numbers: What Statistics Can Tell Us About Sexual Behaviour, in which he concurs with Kinsey’s contested claim that ten per cent of us are gay.

Even though many surveys find that less than two per cent of respondents consider themselves to be exclusively homosexual, Spiegelhalter concludes that ten per cent of the population could well be involved in same-sex behaviour.
