The relationship between biology and sexual orientation is a subject of research.

Since its launch inChannel 4 has operated under a remit that demands that it serves the "tastes and interests not generally catered for" by other UK broadcasters. While gay content has far from saturated its schedules, and while an inventory of the gay-themed items it has showcased since the early s may, rather dispiritingly, still be produced with relative ease, C4 has at least attempted to articulate a response to the viewing needs and desires of an increasingly visible queer community, if only by acknowledging that such a community exists and should be represented in a percentage of its shows. In the years since its inception, the channel has allowed for greater gay, lesbian, and bisexual visibility than its terrestrial competitors in both its fictional and documentary output.
