Do gay men have more “feminine” characteristics and do lesbians have more “masculine” characteristics than heterosexuals?

No. The belief that all gay men have characteristics perceived as feminine and that all lesbians have characteristics perceived as masculine is false and based on stereotypes and prejudice.

That said, the reality is that gender expression varies from person to person, regardless of sexual orientation.
