Boston's favorite same sex couple return

Earlier today Boston's favorite same sex couple returned to the Boston Public Garden. Romeo & Juliet, the two graceful swans that make the pond in the Public Garden their home are back. Back in 2005 (just a year after same sex marriage was legalized in MA) it was learned that Romeo is in fact a female, which caused many conservatives who like to scream about how unnatural homosexuality is to cry foul (or was it fowl?)!

According to the zoo keepers who watch over the couple in the winter months, the two swans have been nesting together for approximately 10 years so if you should find yourself in Boston, head over to the Boston Public Gardens and congratulate the city's favorite lesbians on their milestone anniversary. We should all be so lucky (not to mention to have such a chic address).

Great post. I'm sure this couple ruffles some feathers. [Sorry, I couldn't resist.]

To slightly misquote a favorite song, sung in the voice of Louis Armstrong, "Birds do it, bees do it, even educated geese do it."
