Speed dat­ing event at zoo adds same-sex night

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

ED­MON­TON (CP) — The an­nual “An­i­mal At­trac­tion” event at Ed­mon­ton’s Val­ley Zoo will be wel­com­ing gay and les­bian par­tic­i­pants this year for a same-sex speed-dat­ing night.

The city-owned zoo has been spon­sor­ing speed-dat­ing for the last cou­ple of years with the aim of in­tro­duc­ing cou­ples who have at least one thing in com­mon — their love of an­i­mals.

So far, three mar­riages have re­sulted, the city said in a news release, and the event has been so suc­cess­ful that or­ga­niz­ers de­cided to add the same-sex por­tion for “a night filled with wild pos­si­bil­i­ties.”

“An­i­mal At­trac­tion of­fers guests the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy an evening filled with warm bev­er­ages and tasty snacks while learn­ing fun facts and steamy de­tails about ro­mance and mat­ing in the an­i­mal king­dom,” said a release.
