I am writing an essay on sexualities and homophobia in education. Who would have thought it was so interesting! I will not bore you with the journal articles but i came across this cute little book they have been trying to ban for the last few years.
Tango Makes Three is the true story of Roy and Silo, two male penguins who've been in a committed, monogamous relationship for nearly six years, who try their darnedest to hatch a rock. When sympathetic zookeepers realize what the couple's trying to do, the get an abandoned egg from a female penguin, which Roy and Silo promptly adopt. And hatch. And raise as their own. Baby Tango. Anyway, while it turns out there are gay penguins everywhere, this particular gay penguin family lives in the Central Park Zoo.
