When we are believers in Christ the Spirit of God witnesses with our spirit that we belong to God. The last thing we want to argue about is our sexuality. As believers it is clear that same sex relations are abominable and we have no business engaging in abominations. We cannot claim to have a relation with Christ and be in such hideous relationships. There is no bigotry about it. The will of God is that there should be a relation between a man and a woman not same sex relationships. It is just pointless debating sexual orientation.

You could define ‘unnatural’ as polygamous or orgiastic so it doesn’t make a distinct prohibition of lesbian couples. I USED to use it as a goto, but if that’s all we have from the WHOLE Bible, it’s not enough. Once you understand what pederasty was, in the time that Paul was writing, in the Greek half of the Roman Empire, then v.27 fits into that, and the context for v.26 becomes too vague to be able to create a clear unequivocal ban on two cohabiting lesbians.
It’s a problem alright!
