In this paper, empirical and theoretical reports which question the causes of male homosexuality are examined. According to these reports, male homosexuality differs from female homosexuality in some respects. Additionally, evidence favouring the consideration of male homosexuality as a biological condition is shown: there are brain differences between gay men and heterosexual men, there are genetic and perinatal factors associated to male homosexuality, there are cognitive and behavioral differences between gay and heterosexual men, there are animal models for studying homosexuality; finally, there are negative findings concerning the psychosocial factors associated to male homosexuality En esta revisión se examinan reportes empíricos y teóricos que indagan sobre las causas de la homosexualidad masculina. Con base en ellos se establece que la homosexualidad masculina difiere de la femenina en algunos aspectos. Adicionalmente, se muestra evidencia suficiente para considerar la homosexualidad masculina como una condición biológica: existen diferencias cerebrales entre hombres gais y hombres heterosexuales, factores genéticos y prenatales asociados con la homosexualidad, diferencias cognitivas y comportamentales, modelos animales para estudiar la homosexualidad; por último, no se ha encontrado evidencia de factores psicosociales asociados con la condición de homosexualidad en los hombres
