A lecture by Sarah Strout, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Dominican College. Two Men and a Baby: The Reproductive Success of Homosexual Males This talk will focus on the mating strategies of homosexual men, particularly relating to reproductive success, from an evolutionary theory. Recent research in the field of evolutionary psychology has indicated that homosexual men are more similar to heterosexual men than previously thought. Until recently, homosexuality has been viewed as an 'evolutionary paradox' because it was thought homosexual men do not have children. My recent work explored the reproductive success of homosexual men and found surprising results.
