In case you are not aware of homosexual behaviour among the animal kingdom, we are here to tell you that it exists and unlike the blame-game, sex beyond heterosexual sex is not an entailment of the West! And to mark the end of the Pride month, London zoo in the first of its kind is holding a gay parade for penguins, known fervently for their homosexual, bisexual, or non-productive sex of the same gender. To make the adorable birds have their very own pride, London Zoo is holding a party for its gay penguins to coincide with the city’s main Pride Parade over the weekend of July 5.
Zookeepers in fact, have put up pictures with some banners ‘some penguins are gay, get over it, as an homage to the charity Stonewall’s Get Over It campaign’ among some gay penguins in the zoo.
Themed under ‘’Zoo Night’’, the campaign on July 5 will open more details into the lives of penguins where visitors can learn about gender, mating and same-sex couples in the animal kingdom.
There will also be a Rainbow Families day on Sunday June 7, with drag storytelling shows about “being who you are, and loving who you want”.
The zoo said: ‘Ronnie and Reggie got together in 2014, and famously adopted an egg that was abandoned by another couple a year later. ‘The pair shared parenting duties of their chick, Kyton, until he fledged the nest. They remain as strong as ever and are often found snuggled up in their nest box together.
‘The duo share their home with 91 other penguins, including fellow same-sex couples Nadja and Zimmer, and Dev and Martin.’
In May, an aquarium in Ireland were revealed that more than half of the penguins at an aquarium in same-sex relationships. The Gentoo penguins had adopted chicks together.
