CORAL REEF SOAP OPERA (Laurel Neme)
According to this article by Laurel Neme, PhD, if you want new ideas for a soap opera, (see VOID LOVE) coral reefs are the place to look. Transgender clownfish, cross-dressing wrasse and polyamorous communities. Underwater utopias.
“…Dive a few meters below the surface and you’ll meet a cast of characters that could rival those on Melrose Place. Similar to that fictional locale, the life of coral reef fish centers around sex, or, more accurately, tactics for successful reproduction necessary for the continuation of their species-referred to as “life history strategies.” For some, these strategies go as far as changing gender.”
