    One of my paternal uncles is gay (but closeted). I'm guessing my gay genes are from that side of the family.

    I'm curious about other gays out there who have gay family members. We all have heard that many gays have other gay relatives. So do you guys have any?

    2 male cousins and one female cousine who are gay, and close to my age but I seldom see them anymore. Also I'm blessed with a wonderful grandson who is gay and has lived with me for over 3 years.

    willular saidOne aunt is lesbian icon_smile.gif


    I've even heard from other gays that they have homosexual relatives of the other sex (i.e. gay male with lesbian relative, lesbian with gay male relative). Interesting.

    Lots of'm. We have the variety pack: gays, str8s, bi's and lesbians.

    A lesbian cousin just the other day tried getting me to dog sit for a week while she and her lover vacation. Only she's just up from the Met which I do love, great location. Had only she been in the Village with the good pizza and all those gay men, I'd have considered it.

    I've a cousin not far from me who's sort of lesbian only not lesbian. Asexual women in partnership for more than 30 years.

    I've another gay cousin in San Fran who's in a decades long marriage.

    My mother was bisexual and I suspect her mom was a sista too, only she died before I could ask. My gaydar goes off when I look at her picture, a very good looking woman, and I suspect a few other ancestors as well.

    My NY cousin and I were looking at old pics one day and both our gaydars were going off on the same pics at the same time including at an aunt who supposedly died by getting hit by a bus. But many suicides generations ago were covered up with various stories. I don't know as it happened before my birth but not too far fetched to think she was a lesbian who took her own life, especially considering how many we have in the family.

    Any time I think about families and gays siblings and relatives I think of the "Browns" of central Alabama. I think there were 3 lesbians and seven or more gay guys all in one generation of cousins and siblings who'd all be about my age now if they are still alive.

    None that I am aware of. I remember overhearing my mom talk about a very distant relative who I've never met who is gay, but I don't know anything else about them.

    Not one in my large extended family that I'm aware of, past or present, and let me tell you, the pressure to represent is exhausting.

    None that I'm aware of, although I'm very suspicious of at least one of my brothers...

    You know what? I tell other people that my younger brother is asexual and they won't believe it. They believe he's denying sexuality in general.

    I could probably describe 2 of my 3 brothers as asexual (including the one I'm suspicious of)... Pretty sure their junk is still in the shrink wrap that it came in.

    Yes, my second cousin is gay. I only found out last year or so; I've never met him but we sometimes talk on facebook; he seems like a really nice guy. Sadly some family, including his mother, pretend he doesn't exist. So there might be more gay family members, but as it's all a bit of a hushhush subject so I wouldn't know. icon_rolleyes.gif

    One of my brothers is gay. I think a other one is but he's only 15 so hasn't come out yet. And 2 of my cousins are lesbians.

    Paternal side: No concrete proof, but I'm sure my grandfather was gay.
    Maternal side: My uncle and one or two cousins.
    Also, my half brother's gay.

    My cousin is a lesbian but she is the typical tumblrina. Obese. Bright red lipstick. Oversized glasses. Annoying hair.

    Yes, a very talented and out cousin on my mother's side. But that's it officially, and I'm not 'suspicious' of anyone else presently.

    My friend has a half brother from his mother's side. His half brother claims to be bi but always has trouble with women.

    Father's side: Some speculation about an uncle who disappeared. It could have just been vicious gossip from a dysfunction, bigoted working class Catholic family.

    Mom's side: My uncle. I always thought he was cool and different (in a good way; the open minded one versus the parochial herd I grew up with). Unfortunately...he has been quite nasty to me.
