If you come across any good stats, text or grahpics, post them here.
Here is an excellent website, almost a one-stop fact shop, on the true nature of homosexuals:
To navigate the site, click on the major topic headings in the left-hand column (which brings up an introduction), then click on the subtopic headings in the right-column for more detailed info. So if you click on 'Psychiatry' in the left-hand column and then click on 'Quick Review' in the right-hand column, it brings up this:
Notice that in these large studies, the actual percentage identified as homosexuals is in the 1% to 3% range, far less than the homosexual lobby claims.
Quick Review: Consider some recent studies evaluating the mental health of homosexuals and bisexuals below. Summary: During the 1960s and early 1970s, homosexuals and homophiles argued that homosexuals were as mentally healthy as heterosexuals. However, confronted by considerable evidence from the late 1990s onward that homosexuals and bisexuals are at least two- to three-fold more likely to manifest mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and substance use disorders compared to heterosexuals, homosexuals and homophiles have promptly started blaming stigma, prejudice, and victimization for elevated psychiatric morbidity among nonheterosexuals. Preliminary considerations suggest that elevated psychiatric morbidity among nonheterosexuals is not readily explicable in terms of stigma, prejudice, and victimization.
Paper: During the 1960s and early 1970s, when homosexuals and homophiles were attempting to persuade psychiatrists that homosexuality is not a mental illness, they portrayed homosexuals as mentally on par with heterosexuals. Nowadays, they blame so-called homophobia for heightened psychiatric problems among homosexuals. What happened? Let us address some recent studies evaluating the mental health of homosexuals and bisexuals:
Table 1: Increased odds of homosexuals scoring above the threshold of the CIS [table not included]
- In a sample of 103 male twin pairs discordant for reporting adult same-sex partners since age 18 years, compared to their heterosexual co-twins, homosexual men were more likely to think about death, want to die,  think of suicide, attempt suicide, or exhibit any of these conditions. ( 1),  Controlling for substance abuse and depressive symptoms other than suicidality, all of the suicidality measures remained significantly associated with homosexual orientation except for wanting to die. (1),  The co-twin study design overcomes the shortcomings of previous suicidality studies that either used convenience samples, most without controls, or population-based samples that did not measure confounding factors such as depression and substance abuse. (1) The mean birth year in this sample was 1949, and the interviews were conducted in the 1990s. A comparison with probability-based samples of male homosexuals with a mean birth year (interview year) of 1935 (1960s), around 1970 (early 1990s), and 1972 (1990s) shows that the later born cohorts do not show any reduction in suicidality risk. (1) Although the prevalence of suicide attempts among male homosexuals and bisexuals has remained constant across birth cohorts, the mean age at initial attempts has declined. (2)
- Fergusson et al. reported a 21-year longitudinal study of a birth cohort of 1,265 individuals in Christchurch, New Zealand. (3) Among 1,007 individuals, 2.8% were homosexual or bisexual as assessed by orientation and relationships after age 16 years. Compared to heterosexuals, homosexuals and bisexuals were more likely to experience depression, generalized anxiety disorder,  conduct disorder,  nicotine dependence,  other substance abuse and/or dependence,  multiple disorders,  suicidal ideation,  and suicide attempts. ( 3) ,  The most elevated risk was for suicidal behavior and multiple disorders. Homosexuals and bisexuals had similar social, family, and childhood backgrounds as the controls, but tended to have experienced a higher rate of parental change during childhood and were slightly more likely to have criminally offending parents. Controlling for increased parental change and parental criminal offending left either similar associations or slightly higher ones than the unadjusted estimates. (3) See here for follow-up analysis of this cohort.
- In a Dutch study, NEMESIS, (4, 5) representative of the Dutch population, 2.8% of 2,878 men and 1.4% of 3,120 women reported same-sex partners in the previous year (classified as homosexual). Compared to heterosexual men, homosexual men had a higher 12-month prevalence of mood disorders and anxiety disorders  Compared to heterosexual women, homosexual women had a higher 12-month prevalence of substance use disorders.  More homosexual than heterosexual women had a lifetime prevalence of mood disorders.  More homosexual than heterosexual women had 1 or more lifetime psychiatric diagnoses.  More homosexuals than heterosexuals had 2 or more disorders during their lifetime.  The authors of the study asked all respondents about their HIV infection status; only one woman reported being HIV-positive, i.e., differences in HIV infection prevalence do not explain the psychiatric differences between homosexuals and heterosexuals in this study. (4)
- In the 1996 U.S. National Household Survey of Drug Abuse (NHSDA),  men who reported same-sex partners in the year prior to the interview reported a higher 1-year prevalence of mood disorders (major depression and panic attack syndromes), and manifested a non-significant tendency toward a higher 1-year prevalence of generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol dependence, and drug dependence compared to men who reported opposite-sex partners in the year prior to the interview. (6) Women who reported same-sex partners in the year prior to the interview reported a higher 1-year prevalence of alcohol dependence and drug dependence,  and manifested a non-significant tendency toward a higher 1-year prevalence of major depression and generalized anxiety disorder compared to women who reported opposite-sex partners in the year prior to the interview. (6)
- In the U.S. National Comorbidity Survey, a nationally representative household survey,  men who reported same-sex partners in the past 5 years manifested a non-significant trend toward elevated 1-year and lifetime prevalence of mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders compared to men who reported opposite-sex partners in the past 5 years. (7) Women who reported same-sex partners in the past 5 years manifested elevated 1-year and lifetime prevalence of mood,  anxiety,  and substance use disorders compared to women who reported opposite-sex partners in the past 5 years. (7), 
- The MacArthur Foundation National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) examined a representative sample of over 3,000 American adults, ages 25-74 years. (8) This group had 2,844 self-identified heterosexuals, 41 self-identified homosexuals, and 32 self-identified bisexuals; the homosexuals and bisexuals were combined (HB) for analysis. (8),  Controlling for demographic factors, compared to heterosexual men, HB men, in the year before the interview, were more likely to manifest major depression, panic disorder,  and multiple mental disorders.  HB men also tended to manifest a higher prevalence of generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol dependency, and drug dependency in the previous year; these trends were not significant due to the small sample size. Adjusting for HIV or AIDS prevalence did not alter these results. Controlling for demographic factors, compared to heterosexual women, HB women, in the year before the interview, were more likely to manifest generalized anxiety disorder, and multiple mental disorders.  HB women also tended to manifest a higher prevalence of major depression, panic disorder, alcohol dependency, and drug dependency in the previous year; these trends were not significant due to the small sample size. HB men but not HB women reported high levels of current mental distress. In the year before the interview, HB individuals were more likely than heterosexuals to have seen a mental health provider, a general physician for mental/emotional complaints,  attended a self-help group,  and taken psychiatric medication. 
- An analysis of 11,876 homosexual and bisexual women revealed a higher prevalence of alcohol and tobacco use among them compared to heterosexual women. (12)
- In a sample of 93,311 women from the Women's Health Initiative cohorts, ages 50-79 years, 0.6% identified as homosexual (half identified as lifetime homosexuals and the rest identified as homosexual after age 45) and 0.8% as bisexual. (13) The homosexual and bisexual women had higher socioeconomic status than the heterosexual women and better access to health care, yet reported higher alcohol use and smoking, poorer mental health (depression ), and other risk factors for reproductive cancers and cardiovascular disease, a pattern similar to that of young homosexual and bisexual women. (13)
- A study of 1,925 American lesbians in the National Lesbian Health Care Survey  revealed that 73% were either in counseling or had received counseling in the past by a professional mental health counselor,  over one-third reported depression in lifetime, 11% reported being presently treated for depression,  11% reported an anxiety disorder in lifetime, 7% reported being presently treated for an anxiety disorder, 57% had thought about suicide at some point of their lives, 18% had attempted suicide, 30% smoked daily and an additional 11% smoked occasionally, about a third drank alcohol regularly, about half used marijuana occasionally, 19% had tried cocaine at some point, 1% used cocaine more than once a week and another 2% used cocaine more than once a month, 37% had been physically abused at least once, 41% had been raped or molested at least once, 19% of 1,779 women reported incest during childhood, 52% reported being verbally attacked for being a lesbian, 6% reported being physically attacked for being a lesbian, and 8% reported having lost their jobs for being a lesbian. (14)
- Drawing upon the subscribers of the Country Lesbian Mailing List and nine lesbian magazines throughout New Zealand, in both rural and urban areas, an examination of 561 women  revealed that 80.7% had used a mental health service at some point of their lives, 45.5% had used such a service in the past year, 56.3% reported molestation before age 16, 56.1% reported molestation after age 16, 22.8% reported a mental illness diagnosis, 52.9% reported suicidal ideation, 20.3% reported suicide attempts, and these women, on average, reported greater psychiatric morbidity than New Zealand women in general in spite of being predominantly white, highly educated, urban, and between 25 and 50 years of age. (15)
- King et al. studied various mental health aspects of 656 homosexual men, 505 heterosexual men, 430 homosexual women, and 588 heterosexual women, recruited by the snowballing method in England and Wales, between the years 2000-2002. (16) More homosexuals than heterosexuals scored above  the threshold of the Clinical Interview Schedule. (17),  More homosexuals than heterosexuals had consulted a mental health professional.  More homosexuals than heterosexuals had used recreational drugs in the past month.  More homosexual women than heterosexual women had used recreational drugs ever;  this statistic did not differ between homosexual and heterosexual men. More homosexuals than heterosexuals had considered harming themselves. More homosexuals than heterosexuals had attempted to harm themselves.  Compared to heterosexual women, homosexual women reported being attacked more often in the past 5 years,  being bullied more often at school,  and elevated verbal harassment in the past 5 years,  but not greater verbal harassment at school or greater property damage in the past 5 years. Compared to heterosexual men, homosexual men reported lower property damage in the past 5 years and reported similar levels of being attacked in the past 5 years, being bullied at school, being verbally harassed in the past 5 years, and being verbally harassed at school. Most interestingly, the increased odds of homosexuals scoring above the threshold of the Clinical Interview Schedule were not affected by controlling for various factors as shown in Table 1. (16) The prevalence of mental disorders is elevated among heterosexuals in this sample, and the authors could not provide a plausible reason for this. There are no reasons to believe that snowballing could have resulted in the homosexual-heterosexual discrepancy, especially since the majority of the participants were recruited without any reference to sexuality. (16)
Comment: Some studies above have reported a non-significant tendency for an elevated prevalence of a specific group of mental disorders among male or female nonheterosexuals, whereas others have reported a significant find for the same. This is readily seen as a consequence of inadequate sample size. Indeed, an analysis of the combined data from several of the above studies reveals that both male and female nonheterosexuals manifest elevated mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders compared to heterosexuals. What accounts for elevated psychiatric problems among nonheterosexuals? So-called homophobia? If so, how does one explain similar suicide attempts among male homosexuals across different birth cohorts, i.e., changing social environment? (1) How does one explain the data in Table 1 in terms of prejudice and discrimination? None exceed the Dutch when it comes to tolerance of homosexuality. The Dutch are a remarkably tolerant people: they allow euthanasia, prostitution, marijuana smoking, same-sex marriage, and tolerate pedophiles. Yet, why as evidenced by the NEMESIS study do Dutch homosexuals manifest a mental health picture similar to their American counterparts? (4) The NEMESIS study reported that compared to heterosexual men, male homosexuals were about 7 times more likely to manifest bipolar disorder and 6 times more likely to manifest obsessive-compulsive disorder  in their lifetime. (4) Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder where subjects alternate between depression and a manic or euphoric state. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by time consuming obsessions and compulsions that may cause marked distress or significant impairment. Note that both bipolar disorder (27, 28) and OCD (29-34) are strongly influenced by genes.
Although one may speculate that the elevated incidence of mood and anxiety disorders among homosexual women in the studies cited above, such as the National Lesbian Health Care Survey (14) or the study based on the Country Lesbian Mailing List (15) may be a consequence of elevated sexual abuse, it has been shown in a community survey that even if one controls for sexual abuse, the two-fold greater likelihood of women experiencing depression or anxiety disorders compared to men is largely unaltered. (35) In addition, much molestation is familial. In some families, genetics associated with non-specific disturbances may also increase the odds of sexual interest in daughters, young sisters, or nieces among males, and the same genetics can be expected to increase the odds of mental disturbance among the female relatives of such men, irrespective of whether these women are molested. Therefore, the molestation of these women by their male relatives may either exacerbate mental problems or not make any additional contributions to their mental problems, yet appear to be causally related to the mental problems of these women (see Section 9.2 in thebook for related information). Furthermore, in the National Lesbian Health Care Survey, “Only 12 percent of respondents indicated that they were concerned about people knowing that they were lesbian.” (14) Therefore, societal acceptance of female homosexuality appears hardly relevant to explaining the mental problems of this group of homosexual women.
It has not been proven that so-called homophobia causes the mental problems of homosexuals. (36) The authors of the co-twin, (1) longitudinal cohort, (3) and Dutch study (4, 5) cited above refrain from blaming so-called homophobia for increased psychiatric morbidity among homosexuals and bisexuals, and their data show why one cannot readily blame so-called homophobia for the mental health problems of homosexuals.
In the 21-year longitudinal study of a birth cohort of 1,265 individuals reported by Fergusson et al. above, homosexual and bisexual youth manifested elevated generalized anxiety disorder. (3),  In this sample, the authors showed that adolescent anxiety disorders correlated with later risks of anxiety disorder, depression, illicit drug dependence, and failure to attend University, after controlling for the confounding effects of socio-familial and individual factors. (37) So-called homophobia is obviously not behind this find.
However, in November 1999, a 12-page pamphlet titled “Just the Facts About Sexual Orientation & Youth: A Primer for Principals, Educators & School Personnel,” was mailed to every school superintendent in the U.S. (download this report here [PDF file]). It was paid for by the National Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Psychological Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, homosexual philanthropist and former Michigan legislator Michael Dively, and also endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Association of School Administrators, the Interfaith Alliance Foundation, and the American School Health Association. (38) It blamed more frequent psychiatric problems experienced by homosexual and bisexual youth upon isolation and harassment in school and few opportunities for observing positive modeling by adults due to the general cultural bias that makes homosexual and bisexual individuals largely invisible. (38) No citation in the pamphlet supported this statement. (38) In the fact-sheet, there was no mention of the co-twin, (1) the longitudinal cohort, (3) and the NEMESIS (5) studies.
