This quiz can help you find out how gay you really are with an exact percentage.

While some people identify as 100 per cent gay or 100 per cent heterosexual, for many people, the reality of their sexuality percentage lies somewhere in between.

In fact, the Kinsey Scale – aka the Heterosexual–Homosexual Rating Scale – was developed by Dr Alfred Kinsey in 1948 and is used to measure human sexuality.

Instead of assigning people to three categories – heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual – Dr Kinsey developed a seven-point scale, which ranges from 0 to 6, with the additional category of X.

Those who sit at 0 or 6 on the scale reported exclusively homosexual or exclusively heterosexual attraction. People at X reported “no socio-sexual contacts or reactions”.

Given that sexuality can sit on a sliding scale, some have described their identity in percentage terms.
