Love Is Love: Zoo Celebrates Gay Penguins During Pride Weekend
The colony features the zoo’s famous same-sex penguin couple Reggie and Ronnie as well as other gay penguins.
The ZSL London Zoo displayed a banner inside the habitat of the Humboldt Penguin colony, which features several gay penguins, that read: “Some Penguins Are Gay, Get Over It.”
The sign is inspired by and honoring Stonewall’s “Get Over It” campaign, which, according to their website, is a way to tackle homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying.”
“We loved Stonewall's campaign and wanted to remind people that same-sex relationships happen across the animal kingdom — even here in our penguin colony at ZSL London Zoo,” the zoo said in a statement to BBC.
The colony features the zoo’s famous same-sex penguin couple Reggie and Ronnie as well as other gay penguins. Reggie and Ronnie came out as a couple in 2014 and have been together ever since.
The habitat features 93 other penguins including two other same-sex couples — Martin and Dev, and Nadja and Zimmer.
