Was anyone taught language and sexuality as a possible topic? For example the use of polari as an exclusive code and gender neutral pronouns like MX?

We briefly touched on it, not a lot but a bit. Just to show how attitudes have changed.

I read on another thread that someone's teacher was friends with an English language AS exam marker and they said it would be on occupation or gender...

I'd be wary of anyone saying they know what it's going to be, because they won't really know; they might have a hunch about a particular area, based on what they think might be good topics or texts, but that's it. The markers don't know what the questions are until you do... I'm one of them BTW.

that was on the Spec paper so unlikely
But three out of the four topics were on the spec paper (occupation, gender and region) so the only one left is social. So it is highly likely that occupation and gender will be on again

The topics are language and social groups, language and region (dialect), language and gender and language and occupation
The other topics in the text book are the A2 topics

Yes, but unlikely for the two main essay questions, they are likely to choose these for part B

This is a really nice style model, I think. Worth a read to see how he does it.

...although you could argue that the question 3 was actually region and class/social groups together, so 4/4 topics actually appeared in some form or other.
