Homosexuality in ancient Egypt
Very little is known about the nature of homosexuality in Ancient Egypt. Most of what historians believe is based on speculation.
The duo Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum, manicurists in the Palace of King Niuserre during the Fifth Dynasty of Egyptian pharaohs, circa 2400 B.C. are speculated to have been homosexual based on a representation of them embracing nose-to-nose in their shared tomb.
However, it is also likely that they were just twin brothers, because in Ancient Egypt, it is believed that death is just a rebirth into another realm, which is a common belief for the rest of Africa the way you were born is the way you died, so the two men were assumedly buried that way because that was the way they came into the world, as twin brothers. Also the men where priests, upholders of Ma'at(the feminine represenation of Law[Maa]). According to the 42 negative confessions it states: "Hail, Qerrti, who comest forth from Amentet, I have not committed adultery, I have not lain with men."

The Tale of King Neferkare & General Sanset
This Middle Kingdom story has an intriguing plot revolving around a king's clandestine homosexual affair with one of his generals. It may reference the actual Pharaoh Pepi II.
The contendings of Horus and Seth
This Middle Kingdom satire of the rivalry between the Egyptian Gods Horus and Seth relates a story in which Seth attempts to seduce his rival Horus. Horus, warned by his mother Isis, does not accept Seth's sexual offer, thus avoiding humiliation from the other gods and disgracing Seth. Seth displays homosexual characteristics in other fragmentary texts as well, commenting "how lovely your backside is!" to his arch-rival Horus.
A New Kingdom version of the satire is more complete. In it, Seth invites Horus to a feast at his home, and when evening arrived both of them made a bed and laid down together. That night they engage in intercrural sex. Horus, having caught a sample of Seth's semen brought it to his mother Isis. Isis, shocked and appalled, chopped off the her sons' semen-covered hand and threw it in the Nile. (She later makes him a new one.) Somewhat later Isis aroused Horus and collected his semen, to sprinkle it on Seth's favorite food, Romaine (cos) lettuce. The trick works and Seth eats the tainted cos lettuce, causing him to become pregnant with his nephew Horus' child. Seth remains unaware of his pregnancy until Thoth commanded that Horus' semen come out of Seth, to unknown consequence. Thus the plan to seduce Horus backfired on Seth.
Ancient Egyptian sexual practices as reflected in the Bible
The Bible enumerates homosexuality among one of the forbidden sexual relationships deemed as "the doings of the land of Egypt" (Leviticus 18:3), from which it can be inferred that homosexuality was indeed practiced by some segment of the population of Ancient Egypt.
