Study after study is revealing substantial same-sex sexual behavior in animals. In Queer Ducks, author Eliot Schrefer presents a well-researched and teen-friendly exploration of queer behavior in the animal world—from albatrosses to bonobos, from clownfish to doodlebugs. Using science, history, anthropology, and sociology—and enhanced by humorous comics from artist Jules Zuckerberg—Queer Ducks illustrates the diversity of sexual behavior in the animal world.
