One problem with this is that your idea may be under the bias of your current cultural place in time. For many other civilizations and cultures, identities and individualism were not as strong factors as they are today (and Asia and Africa still do not experience them to the extent that Western societies do), so many cultures may view what we would consider the homosexual experience in the light of just part of what most people experience in general, in other words, not a specific identity. In ancient times, necessities to survive and create more babies/people may have helped established the societal male/female family structure but homosexual experience certainly still existed (and in some cases may not even be viewed as a breach of the family relationship's expectations). To get more specific information, though, you'll have to focus on the specific experiences of people in a specific place and time. Good luck with that!
