Definitely interesting. Though I do no believe in reincarnation personally, this theory sounds a lot better than the usual BS.
The thing is, doesn't reincarnation apply to every living thing? I have heard a lot of the man trapped in a woman's body, but i have yet to hear "I'm a gazelle trapped in a man's body". If the soul is able to remember it's sexual preference would it not also remember its preference for roaming the wild African plane and eating grass?

Why does there have to be a 'reason' for homosexuality? Surely by looking for explanations it is saying that being gay or a lesbian isn't normal
What about animals who perform homosexual acts, have they memory of a previous life?

I think your students and yourself are confusing Homosexuality for Transgenderism.
I'm a gay male, and never have I wanted, or though to be a woman in any sense of the world. I also believe in reincarnation, not the simplified verision, but reincarnation none the less.
I don't know why homosexuality exists, I simply know that it does and until we find a solution to the question of what causes or why causes, there's really no point arguing the issue anymore.
Then again I believe it to be a non issue in today's society.
It's an interesting hypothesis though, I had not thought of that one.
