Gay penguins left in peace after breeding plans stall
Two male king penguins who didn't quite live up to their keepers' plans for them to go forth and multiply have been moved from Berlin to Hamburg zoo.
“They're gay, as far as we know,” said Berlin Zoo spokeswoman Christiane Reiss of penguins Stan and Olli.
“They never bred. And when it came to courtship, they only mated with one another.”
Stan and Olli were brought to Berlin under the European Conservation Programme (EEP) in a bid to bring more baby king penguins into the world and ensure the future of the species.
But now they're acclimatizing to their new life in Hamburg where they'll be exclusively in the company of other males – including another $#@!sexual couple, Juan and Carlos – and free to be themselves.
Even their names have changed since the move to the northerly port city.
“We're calling them Kalle and Grobi now,” Hamburg penguin keeper Dave Nelde said.
Penguins, it seems, have been at the forefront of the fight for gay rights in Germany, where same-sex marriage is not legal and gay couples have very limited adoption rights.
