From my observations, that's pretty typical of many poly communities...mostly straights, a few bi's (especially women but occasionally a guy) and few gay men or lesbians. (But however...they are usually some of the most gay-friendly straights you'll ever meet.
The reason I think is that even if the gay men or lesbians are living a poly lifestyle, they often don't actually think of the world "poly".
Big metro areas like NY or SF are probably the exception...they are more likely to have LGBT-oriented Poly groups.
Good luck in your search and your journey.
