They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. In the very same way, these dreamers pollute their own bodies, reject authority and slander celestial beings.

I think the Vulgate translation is closer to fornication and strange flesh.

So we see for sure that they gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion, but we also see that "all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house." Even after Lot offered his virgin daughters, they refused. If they were just after rape, they would have quite simply taken his daughters.
But the question arises, is the sexual immorality specifically homosexuality? Is not rape a more serious sin, and if so, does it not make sense that the rape is why cries out to heaven? Homosexuality is a pretty ubiquitous sin, but gang rape is much less common, and much more significant. If it was homosexuality God was seeking to punish, why did he not, at that time, destroy the whole world?
