Gay Penguin Adoption

Two gay male penguins at a zoo in the UK are raising a baby penguin, and everything seems to be going swimmingly, so to speak.

When the two paired up, the zoo officials first thought they were hetero-, so named them Guido and Molly, but blood tests performed after 16 months together produced no egg showed that both Guido and Molly are male. They adopted an egg abandoned by its parents, kept it safe by taking turns caring for it like any penguin couple, and are now raising the chick as their own.

Good thing there are no penguins in Uganda!
