Watch our volunteer guide in the Museum of Zoology discussing fascinating stories exploring how common same-sex sexual behaviour is in animals, but has been actively hidden from public view. For example, George Levick on the Scott Polar Expedition wrote his account of male-male penguin sex in Greek to ensure only “educated gentlemen” could access it.
