I think the problem is the labeling. Why label yourself "bi", "straight" or "gay" and then try to force yourself to stick with it for your entire life? Things change and sometimes sexuality change. There are some "straight" guys that just lose interest in women or "bi" guys that just lose interest in other guys and therefore are straight...
People act like they KNOW what's going on in another person's mind and just say "they are denying it and are really this way or that way", NO, things change in nature because change is what is natural.
And for all those people saying that he is gay just because he slept with a man, you have a simplistic view of sexuality.
Sexuality is who you are attracted to, not who you are sleeping with.
Sometimes there are questioning straight guys that sleep with man to see if they are really straight and most are straight, and sometimes there are gay guys sleeping with women thinking that it'll "turn" them straight.
Go with your nature and be yourself. Be authentic because the lies are just illusions.
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!
- Polonius (Hamlet, W.Shakespeare)

One interesting thing to note is that Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Genome project has stated that there is no ‘gay gene’...His belief is that homosexuality, and to take it a step further sexuality in general is not necessarily ‘hardwired’ in the brain from birth, but rather remains fluid.
I myself believe that this is probably common sense also for if there were such thing as a ‘gay gene’ it would have probably bred itself out long before humans even evolved as a species.
So how does this apply to the question of Androgyny as a spiritual concept? ...
But what is sex, and to a greater degree relationships as a whole, on a spiritual level?
It is basically a merging of two souls. In the old dualistic world (which still well and truly holds sway today) men and women entered relationships to fulfill to a certain degree a part of themselves which was missing. ..It is the relationship as a whole which matters, and this is really the key.
For in a the emerging new age I feel that more and more people will begin forming loving relationships between others who will help them grow on a spiritual level regardless of their physical gender. This I believe is one of the main reasons which these old barriers are beginning to crumble. It is to allow us the freedom to interact and form relationships with whomsoever we desire in order to give us the tools to allow us reach our maximum spiritual potential.
This is true.
ETA: Sexuality is not a complicated thing. It is we who make it complicated as we all seem to do with most aspects of our lives....
