Would it be possible to have more then one gay child within a single family?

    I guess anything is possible. The real question is how often does this situation occur? Is there anyone else that has whitnessed this first hand?

    Happens all the time. Seen a show on logo once about gay siblings... one family had 5 siblings, all gay/lesbian.

    Identical twins tend to be gay if one of them is gay.

    I've known a few gay siblings, too.

    We're pretty sure one of my older half-sisters is a lesbian...

    Statistically, it's probably not the most common thing for more than one to be 100% gay... but it's not so rare that it's unheard of.

    In all my years of being out, I have known many brothers and or sisters from the same family that are gay. I have also known a guy who had an identical twin brother who was not gay like he was. The twins however had an older brother that was. The gay twin was not as close to the straight married twin as he was the older non-twin brother.

    Definitely. My brother is gay, and I can see it all over my family tree! icon_eek.gif

    Actually it happens quite frequently. One of my oldest gay friends who now lives in Vancouver, is one of 6 kids, 5 boys and 1 girl. Three of the boys are gay!

    I'm one of 5 and both my brothers are gay. One came to me about it, the other is in denial but I'm sure of it.

    I think there are far more gay people in the world than any study will ever get them all to admit....

    Of Course it is! Also depends on how tight your definition of "family" is. None of my 5 siblings are gay but I have uncles, aunts and cousins who are, on all sides of my family tree.icon_biggrin.gif

    My one and only sibling(brother) is also gay. I don't know how common it is, but people always seem to find it interesting. The only bad thing about it is the one question we get disturbingly often...

    every guy with a creepy brother-on-brother fantasySo, uh... have you guys ever messed around??

    As far as I know out of 9 kids I am the only son of my biological mother who is gay. Then agai my three youngest siblings are too young to tell at this period of time. I did have gay and bi foster brothers in 1 or 2 of the families i was in but i didn't know about it until i was stripping next to him in the same club. I also experimented when i was 8 with 2 other foster brothers... It wasn't truly a sexual thing at the time but the idea wasn't mine to touch each others parts and stuff it was my older foster brother Charlie Garcia... I always liked my men older and exotic... I blame him for those preferances. hahahaicon_lol.gif

    I have five sisters. My biggest hope is that none of them are gay.

    I have an older brother that is for sure gay, and a younger brother that is getting more and more obvious day by day! So i wonder since we're all not straight, will this massive amount of presure of me having to continue our family name ever lift?icon_question.gif

    My mom comes from a family of eight siblings. One boy and one girl is gay. I also have at least two gay cousins. Including people related to me by marriage, there are at least 8 gay people in my family!
