London Zoo has celebrated Pride Month is the best possible way.

Currently, the zoo in the UK’s capital has three same-sex penguin couples and to celebrate their love, staff amended Stonewall’s famous ‘Get Over It’ campaign slogan to read ‘Some Penguins are Gay, Get Over It’.

In a statemen, London 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.”
