Answer

You can find articles about this subject in the library academic databases.  To use them, follow the link below to our Databases by Subject guide.  In the guide, select a subject tab to view the databases available about that subject.  For this subject, the databases in the Science and the Hot Topics & News tabs both would be good choices.

In the available EBSCO databases, you can retrieve all articles about sexual identity by searching for DE "SEXUAL orientation identity".  You can narrow this down by searching for DE "SEXUAL orientation identity" AND biology.  A broader search is DE "SEXUAL orientation" AND biology.  There are also articles specifically about homosexuality and biology, which you can retrieve by searching for DE "HOMOSEXUALITY -- Genetic aspects".

Other options are the more current-events based databases such as CQ Researcher and Gale: Opposing Viewpoints.  Searches like sexuality biology or homosexuality biology will retrieve some articles or viewpoints that provide some discussion of the topic.
