I assume that you are referring to HMS1 "homosexuality 1" as named by Human
Nomeclature Committee.  

Limited information on the gene can be found in the Genome Data Base or OMIM.  
(In OMIM it is referred to as GAY1).

The WWW site for these databases is http://gdbwww.gdb.org/

The paper first describing this gene is:

	Hamer et al. Science:261 321-7 (1993).

For information on popular press coverage, possibly another reader of your
posting can help you out.
