Do homosexual people realize it was their mothers that gave birth to them?
Homosexuality has more than one etiology. The fact that it often runs in families indicates a strong genetic/epigenetic influence. But this isn't to say that this is the only way one can develop homosexual feelings. The brains higher areas remain plastic throughout life: meaning one could, if they so wanted, develop homosexual or heterosexual attractions at any age.
The most essential technique in effecting change has been a combination of western psychological self introspection, as well as the eastern practice of mindfulness.

Having made decades of amateur sociological observations myself, it doesn't surprise me at all that you are interested ( both ) in trauma, and homosexuality.
Sure, it's an interest I have. But I am not about to go risking my career trajectory by investigating an area this emotionally explosive.
Eventually, I think neuroscience will veer into this area ... The presence of a masculine-femine context, although it might have some subtle effects we still cant quantify (evolutionary psychology might help shed light on this area), research still shows that it's not going to create the type of problems that religious fundamentalists claim.
