Same-Sex Swan Couple Return To Boston Public Garden

BosGuy is blogging that Romeo and Juliet, the two graceful swans that frequent the pond at the Boston Public Garden, are scheduled to make their seasonal debut tomorrow. The pair made headlines in 2005 when it was discovered Romeo was actually female—giving new meaning to the phrase “Boston marriage.”

According to the zookeepers who watch over the couple in the winter months, the two swans have been nesting together for approximately 10 years so if you should find yourself in Boston, head over to the Boston Public Gardens and congratulate the city’s favorite lesbians on their longevity together.

The traditional tenth anniversary present is tin or aluminum, but we figure the girls would probably just prefer some breadcrumbs.

    santorum is probably on a pulpit somewhere banging his fist on it and ranting that the two swans are the spawn of the devil, or some horseshit like that. The nut may be gett
    ing ready to go off the two birds as we speak. The jerk is a complete loser.

    They look as though they really love each other. Lesbian action, action swans, hello. Sweet beaks, what’s all the flap about? National Organization for Swans will be collecting signatures on the pond’s edge by noon. Their love ruffles the feathers of straight swans, so therefore, they MUST BE OPPRESSED!
