Brokeback Beetles

Being snow bound today, I spent a fair bit of time within earshot of the good ole CBC. A couple of things caught my attention. Gay farmer/comic Trevor Boris joked about driving a John Queer and cultivating gummy bears and disco balls. And on Quirks and Quarks, Sara Lewis, an evolutionary ecologist at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, was interviewed about her research discovering an evolutionary advantage for queer Flower Beetles. Read about it.
