does Homosexuality have something to do with Science or pure Inlfluence?

i have plenty of gay friends. I asked a few of them as to how come they became gays. Almost all their responses were the same "I was born gay" or that "I've been like this since" or that "that's how i was created". I am ignorant of any explanation science have over homosexuality, if there are any. i am still more swayed by the idea that homosexuality is more of a creation of influences of people and things around a person. Going into JOhn Locke's concept that the brain is like a blank slate or a "tabularasa" at birth. Which means that a child knows nothing yet and knowledge of things is just acquired through time by experiences.

I believe that it could be a case of either one or both of those factors. It's possible that there is a hormonal imbalance present, resulting in the reduction of 'masculine' characteristics and the increase of 'feminine' characteristics. It's possible that something went wrong during the gestation period resulting in the abovementioned problem. It could also be a preference. I've heard of guys going homosexual as a statement of rebellion against some larger straitlaced organization (like their parents). Preferential homosexuality could also come from experiences in life, particularly traumatic ones.
