How can you seriously suggest that a certain percentage of population having a gay inclination is not natural?
Easy. Humans and other mammals reproduce how?
Humans willfully pervert their anatomical functions for pleasure or gratification. Many times this is hidden or masked (like an ancient Greek actor) out of their own guilt-ridden philosophical perspective. It shows they are really afraid to admit they enjoy, or have become enslaved, to their perversion(s).
It is an idol they have constructed for you to revere and obey so they don't have to admit they are perverts.
Any human population has a percentage aberrant behavior - - rapists, molestors, drunks, murderers, suicides, etc. Homosexuality is no different...

It seems you are confusing "natural" with "good."
Unnatural means atypical, artificial, or externally imposed. It is absolutely clear that a minority of the population having homosexual inclination is typical, universal, and organic among human populations.
Knowing this, we are still left with categories -- it could be protectible (like we protect disabilities and racial minorities), it could be totally ignored (like being left-handed), it could be regarded with distaste but not punished (like beign grossly overweight), it could be regarded as sickness and treated with pity and symptons (i.e., gay conduct) not punished, or it could be regarded as a sociopathology and treated with punishment and incapacitation.
The category you pick is going to be based on your values, but none of it goes to show that gayness is unnutural.
