Your calculation is flawed as you assume that 1.7million - 450 species do not show any signs of homosexuality, which is impossible to back up without proper research.
Wikipedia states (for whatever it is worth):
A 1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior has been observed in close to 1,500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them
A new review made in 2009 of existing research showed that same-sex behavior is a nearly universal phenomenon in the animal kingdom, common across species.
Then again the article also states that most of them are probably bi-sexual and that the observation of homosexual behavior in animals can be seen as both an argument for and against the acceptance of homosexuality in humans

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.
