Missy and Penelope,Ireland’s First Lesbian Penguins: A story for Disney

lesbian-penguins

lesbian-penguinsThe Disney world is crying out for it’s first big screen lesbian couple. We’re all waiting for the next princess to be gay but how about Disney get inspired by Ireland’s first lesbian penguin couple, Missy and Penelope.
