Anto said I don't see how forcing people to be a part of something they might not want to be part of as leading to quality discernment or judgment. Would you want a jury of people who hate having to be there and might be wanting to get it over with as soon as possible deciding your fate?
As a trial lawyer I work with juries all the time. At the beginning of the trial a panel of about 60 possible jurors comes in and the judge and both lawyers ask them questions about their opinions re issues in the trial.
Almost all of them hate having to be there. But most of them understand why it's necessary. They understand that someday it might be them having their fate decided.
After the trial I always talk to them about their jury service. With few exceptions they say they take their role seriously and find the experience rewarding.
As a gay male you are part of a demographic that needs to be better represented on our juries. What if you get assigned to a case involving gay-bashing or employment discrimination? You should be honored that you have a chance to give justice to someone who won't get it without someone like you sitting in judgment.
