Queers Make Good Parents – In The Animal Kingdom, Too

Gay stork

We’ve all heard about the tales of gay penguins (in Manhattan’s Central Park Zoo, in Coney Island’s New York Aquarium, in Germany’s Bremerhaven Zoo) and, while we’ve never heard about two male rhinos getting their swerve on, there is news about a phenomenon across the animal kingdom: two sets of queer storks taking up parenting.

Holland’s Overloon Zoo is home to a lesbian pair of storks who were given two eggs to look after and a gay male duo given one egg. All the eggs have since hatched and, wouldn’t you know it, both gay couples are raising their adopted offspring just as well as any of the hetero storks.

Cue the religious zeolots, lobbying against “animal cruelty.”

      Actually one of the female storks managed to get pregnant and then went back to her girlfriend while it is assumed that the male stork couple stole an egg from another nest.
      At least the zoo officials claim that they were surprised by the events and did nor give them any eggs to foster.
