Few things make me happier than a story about gay penguins. But check out what’s going on at the Toronto Zoo.
So much for Canada’s more favorable laws for gay couples.
It’s actually pretty common for male penguins to pair up in captivity, and their natural habitat. Besides Buddy and Pedro in Toronto, some celebrity couples include Roy and Silo from New York City’s Central Park Zoo, who inspired Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell’s children’s picture book AND TANGO MAKES THREE. There was also Harry and Pepper from the San Francisco Zoo, Z and Vielpunkt from Bremerhaven Germany, and Cass and Wendell at New York City’s Aquarium.
Isn’t it time for Hallmark to start a line of Valentine’s Day cards featuring two male penguins, along with all the cutesy hetero bear and mouse and cat couples?
