Almost a quarter of British adults and half of toyear-olds report having at least some homosexual feelings. Half of British young people say they are not per cent heterosexual, according to a new survey. When asked to plot themselves on a scale of sexuality, ranging from exclusively heterosexual to exclusively gay, 72 per cent of adults and 49 per cent of people aged 18 to 24 chose a position other than completely straight.
Before and during the formation of the United KingdomChristianity and homosexuality clashed. Same-sex sexual activity was characterised as "sinful" and, under the Buggery Actwas outlawed and punishable by death. LGBT rights first came to prominence following the decriminalisation of sexual activity between men, in in England and Walesand later in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The sisters of gay men tend to have more children, helping explain the persistence of homosexuality in larger populations, while straight men may also carry genes predisposing them to being gay, the study found. He took into account previous research that gay men are more likely to come from larger families. Dr Chaladze said: "The trend of female family members of homosexual men to have more offspring can help explain the persistence of homosexuality, if we also consider that those males who have such genes are not always homosexuals.
Thirty years of increasingly liberal attitudes towards gay sex may be coming to an end after the number of people who said they considered it wrong rose for the first time since the Aids crisis. Every year since, tolerance had increased, but now the British Social Attitudes Survey has found the number of people believing there is nothing wrong with gay sex has fallen, leaving a third of the population in some way opposed. The finding, based on a survey of 2, people, coincided with the first dip in more than a decade in people saying they think sex before marriage is not at all wrong, with people from non-Christian religious groups the most likely to disapprove. The authors of the study cautioned it would require future polling to confirm whether the small rise in people who consider gay sex to be in some way wrong was statistically significant.

Thousands of men convicted of offences that once criminalised homosexuality but are no longer on the statute book have been posthumously pardoned under a new law. A clause in the policing and crime bill, which received royal assent on Tuesday, extends to those who are dead the existing process of purging past criminal records. The general pardon is modelled on the royal pardon granted by the Queen to Alan Turingthe mathematician who broke the German Enigma codes during the second world war.
