Antinous and Dionysus are some good examples.

I'm sorry guys but no one of the Greek gods were homosexual. I know all the Greek mythology and I say that no one was homosexual.

Windyone, homosexuality was very common in Greece. For instance:
http://www.pbs.org/empires/thegreeks/background/19a_p1.html

It is not such an astonishing thought that their gods and goddesses reflected that.

The word lesbian actually comes from greek.
" "pertaining to the island of Lesbos," from L. Lesbius,from Gk. lesbios "of Lesbos," Greek island in northeastern Aegean Sea (the name originally may have meant "wooded"), home of Sappho, great lyric poet whose erotic and romantic verse embraced women as well as men,hence meaning "relating to homosexual relations between women" (1890; lesbianism in this sense is attested from 1870) and the noun, first recorded 1925" ~etymonline.com

Athena and Artemis were lesbian, Aphrodite covers homosexuality, and Dionysus is the patron of bisexuals

The Gods were homosexual, incestuous. and often bestial! In other words, they often had human traits and human vices.
Anyone taking notice of windyone should read his profile. It's a hoot!

Forgetting Greek mythology, we should explore the actual history of Greece.

It's generally well accepted that Alexander the Great was bisexual, if not outright homosexual.

One of his first victories was also against a band of soldiers who consisted of men who had pledged themselves to their partner within the band, in oaths of love and loyalty. And this wasn't no platonic, soldierly love.

Young men were encouraged to be with other men until it was time to marry and produce heirs, and even then... so long as heirs were produced... having a male lover was at worse regarded as somewhat immature among adults.

So, this being the case, why would the gods of the same people turn away from such practice?

In answer to your question, Alan, outside of Greek culture just about any god of love and desire would likely apply. The ancient peoples were often far more liberal in their interpretation of sexuality, and generally did not confine it to one gender or the other.

Seth is an Egyptian god that is considered to be either homosexual or bisexual. However, Horus the Younger could also be considered so, since during their battles, both of them attempted to rape the other as a show of power. They did have a union, and out of this union 4 new gods came forth, Imsety, Hapy, Duamutef, and Qebehsenuef (and yes, I had to look the names up, lol).

In the old religions, homosexuality wasn't considered wrong as much as it is in modern society. It seems more than a bit devolved.
