Gay penguin marriages: just as fragile as straight penguin marriages
Straight penguins have no monopoly on divorce (in fact, 50 percent of penguin marriages fail), as proven by the recent dissolution of the same-sex union between San Francisco penguins Harry and Pepper. The pair lovingly raised one chick together, but the marriage apparently could not withstand the machinations of Linda, a widowed penguin with designs on Harry. Henry's Travels hopes that the same-sex marriage of two male German penguins, who are raising a chick of their own, will hold fast. The LGBT penguin community needs all the role models it can find.
