ANIMALS LIKE US: ANIMAL HOMOSEXUALITY

For years, scientists ignored or denied that homosexuality occurred in the animal world.

But recent scientific research has revealed that more than 450 different kinds of animals engage in homosexual activity. Saint Thomas Productions has taken the results of this research, and combined it with never-before-seen footage, to produce this compelling and groundbreaking documentary. ANIMAL HOMOSEXUALITY explores the various ways homosexuality is expressed in the animal kingdom through courtships, affection, sex, pair-bonding and parenting among many species including dolphins, killer whales, seals, penguins, Japanese macaques and many more. It is also revealed that in the natural world homosexuality does not necessarily cause marginalization. Within some species, most notably dolphins, same-sex pairs often mate for life. With the help of scientific research, international stock footage and location shoots all over the world, Saint Thomas exposes a phenomenon that has gone unnoticed until now and re-examines the fundamental paradigms of nature.
