    Hi Kevin. I am no theologian, but the context of Romans 1:26-27 is not only pertaining to sex, but “all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men.” The context is set for us in Romans 1:18 and not strickly Roman or sexual context. You bring up the long hair passage of 1 Corinthians 11, but he qualifies that passage with verse 16, stating that the church had no other practices at the time. Paul qualified his cultural statement. Homosexual practice, on the other hand, was never conditional or contextual based on cultural practices. Any sexual relations between men in Scripture has been presented negatively (to say the least) and any mention of marriage is between men and women, even when culturally speaking, homosexual practice was widely accepted by both the Roman and Hellenistic cultures. There was a debate couple of years ago between Dr. James White and Graeme Codrington. It was an enlightening experience personally for both sides. God bless you.
