At Quantify Research, we support equality and diversity, and to honor pride month we want to highlight the work of our Lead Analyst, Christoph Abé, who recently published a large-scale imaging-genetics study on sexual orientation and the brain. Hopefully, the results can help promote equality, contribute to de-stigmatization efforts, and in turn improve mental health outcomes in the LGBTQ community.

Non-heterosexual sexual orientation is still stigmatized in some parts of the world, which is one of the reasons why people with minority sexual orientation more often suffer from mental health problems. This study provides evidence that sexual behavior has a biological basis, opposing the misconception that sexuality is a choice.

Christoph will present the results in more detail at King’s College London on July 9th. The original research article can be found here: Cross-sex shifts in two brain imaging phenotypes
