Do any of you have gay family memebers? My father's family is a complete mystery, so I have no idea. But I know that my mother's uncle -- who I met only once 30 years ago -- pegged my gaydar to the maximum gayness scale. Even though I was only 15 I could tell (he was a nice man though). I haven't seen her family in 30 years (they live in Europe) so for sure there are more gays. But it gets better: One day (10 years ago) while in the car my mother tells me that she had something to say but didn't know if she should. She says that she had fallen in love with another woman! It was the shock of my life and I couldn't believe what she had just said. It then instantly dawned upon me that my queerness is at least partially genetic (but there are definite eviromental reasons in my case too).
