In July 2009, an alleged homosexual penguin in a California zoo was debunked.[1]

Roy and Silo were male penguins in New York City's Central Park Zoo[2] who developed a pair bond that was interpreted by proponents of the gay agenda as an example of "homosexual animals".[3] They were the subject of the children's book And Tango Makes Three.

In fact, no animal displays the type of very promiscuous homosexual lifestyle that has tragically shortened the lifespan of many humans. "Mr. Gramzay said that he never saw them complete a sex act but that the two did engage in mating rituals like entwining their necks and vocalizing to one another."[4] Silo later mated with a female penguin.

Scientists have also not considered that these penguins were taken from their natural habitat, Antarctica. The change in air temperature, latitudes, etc. may have had adverse effects on chemical balances in their brains, leading to abnormal behaviors. In summary, captivity can compound the penguin's homosexual behavior and the incident has no bearing on homosexuality in animals in nature nor in human beings.
