                                       Gay Sexuality: Biology as a Destiny
 
The audiences consisted of students, faculty, and community members.
 
The Biology as a Destiny presentation helped audience members compare and contrast the definitions of sexual orientation and sexuabehavior; describe the spectrum of sexuality in the general population; identify that sexual orientation is not a choice; describe how genetics plays a role in male homosexuality; list the current biological theories on causation of male homosexuality; and identify neuroanatomical  differences between homosexual and heterosexual men.
 
Audience feedback/impact of presentation:
 
I learned being gay isn't a choice. You are born with it. There are more factors to being gay than just genetics. I will accept them more for who they are. I will be able to stand up for them by saying they didn't choose to be gay.-19 y/o F  
 
Really good presentation. Very informative. I learned that it's not just genes, but a combination.-19 y/o F
 
Great presentation. Very informative. I learned the more older brothers a boy has, the more likely to be gay. I will continue to be accepting to all people because it's not a choice and there is enough hate in the world.-19 y/o F
