Bear in mind: a genetic link does not mean that being gay is 100% genetic. It almost certainly isn't. But it is probably something that's built in to genes, meaning they have the capacity for it, but need environmental factors to activate them. These could be gestational environment (hormone levels, stress, nutrition, infection), they could be parenting styles, home environment, exposure to radioactive waste, whatever.
You could count on two hands the number of traits that are purely, 100% due to "nature" or "nurture," independent of the other.
Off the top of my head:
100% Nature -
Hair color (without dye)
100% Nurture -
Religion (which one)
Language (which one)
