What is the position of Buddhism on Homosexuality?

"Gays and Lesbians are welcome in my world
In a lot of religions in this world, gays and lesbians are not accepted… from my point of view, and I would say from a Buddhist point of view, gay and lesbian are welcome in my world. I’m happy to see how they love and take responsibility for each other and for their family.
Buddha never said to be gay is not good; to be lesbian is not good.
Buddha only cares about your happiness. God only cares for your happiness. If they do not care about your happiness, what are they talking about?  What is their point?
So don’t be sad, don’t be unhappy if you are gay or lesbian.
In a relationship, it is appreciation of the other that is most important. This is the quality that will bring you happiness… whether you are heterosexual, gay or lesbian.
In some relationships love comes first, deep appreciation comes later; in others appreciation comes first and love comes later. It doesn’t matter as long as you are happy in yourself and happy in your relationship."
(Kalu Rinpoche)
