There are significant differences in the facial shapes in homosexual and heterosexual men, scientists claim.

A study was carried out by researchers at the Center for Theoretical Study at Charles University in Prague and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

It was found in the study that homosexual men were rated as more stereotypically 'masculine' than heterosexual men. It undermined stereotypical notions of gay men as more feminine looking.

According to researchers, homosexual men had relatively wider and shorter faces and they also have smaller and shorter noses, and massive and more rounded jaws, "resulting in a mosaic of both feminine and masculine features".
