In the military, men and women have to work and bunk together in close quarters. Including showering together. Just as it is reasonable for a servicewoman to not want to shower in front of men, it is reasonable for a man to not want to shower with, or bunk with, an openly gay man. Homosexuality is a behavior, not a race.
But of course, the word "homophobia" trivializes (if not completely canceling out) the reasonable objections of heterosexual servicemen. Story here.
