Gay penguins across the UK are rejoicing after it was announced that they would 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 gave some banners to their gay penguins with the words ‘some penguins are gay, get over it, as an homage to the charity Stonewall’s Get Over It campaign.
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, it was revealed that more than half of the penguins at an aquarium in Ireland were in same-sex relationships.
The Gentoo penguins had adopted chicks together.
In April last year Geri Horner of Spice Girls fame was pictured with Ziggy, another one of London Zoo’s gay penguins.
