Leslie tries to drum up some publicity for the Pawnee Zoo by marrying its two penguins in a faux ceremony.

But after the penguins begin to copulate during the ceremony, it's discovered that both are male.

Through no fault of her own, Leslie has become an unintentional gay marriage advocate.

At first, she's reluctant to embrace the role, but this is Leslie. She secretly loves the attention.

A trip to the local gay bar results in more awkwardness and apprehension, plus a lot of shots.

This lands Leslie on the local talk show, Pawnee Today, the following day to explain herself.

Elsewhere, Leslie's pal Ann gets asked out by Mark, and Andy also tries to win her back. No dice.
