The chapter discusses twice-exceptionality of the homosexual/lesbian-bisexual/queer gifted child and adolescent from neuropsychological point of view. Non-cisgender gifted have come into the center of giftedness research only around the last decade of the twentieth century, a long time after other sub-subjects of giftedness, such as gender, twice-exceptionality, emotional- and psychiatric problems of the gifted have been already a main part of both theory and practice in the field of giftedness. Thus, the intersection of gay studies and giftedness is still in its infancy, and its study from the neuroscientific point of view is even more limited.
