Young people who desist from a trans identity are disproportionately likely to grow up to be non-heterosexual.

A Dutch paper [1] notes that, for gender dysphoric children, the more likely psychosexual outcome in adulthood is a homosexual sexual orientation without gender dysphoria.

Evidence [2] suggests that many boys whose childhood gender dysphoria recedes with puberty will grow up to be bisexual or homosexual. Another study of males [3] indicates that bisexual/homosexual orientation is far greater than base rates in the general male population, with 63.6% of boys with gender identity disorder being same-sex attracted.

This suggests that a non-heterosexual orientation is particularly likely among gender dysphoric boys.
