This link that was posted by a previous poster, was based on answers by Dr. Blanchard.
"Most pedophiles have a definite preference for one sex or the other. But it's tough to estimate the percentage of pedophiles who are heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual in their attraction to children, Blanchard says."
The entire protest of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force consisted of the following statement:This Dr. was protested by the gay task force. They didn't want him on the APA board because he "didn't fall in step".

Statement by Rea Carey, Acting Executive Director
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
“We are very concerned about these appointments. Kenneth Zucker and Ray Blanchard are clearly out of step with the occurring shift in how doctors and other health professionals think about transgender people and gender variance. It is extremely disappointing and disturbing that the APA appears to be failing in keeping up with the times when it comes to serving the needs of transgender adults and gender-variant children.”
Blanchard served as Chair of the paraphilia sub-working group for the DSM-5, despite this protest.
