LONDON Zoo is celebrating Gay Pride and it's famous same-sex penguin couple with a penguin-size banner entitled 'Some penguins are gay. Get over it'.

Gay residents, Humboldt penguins Ronnie and Reggie, welcomed the sign erected on the pebbles of their beach enclosure ahead of the annual Gay Pride Parade and celebrations next weekend. The same-sex pair became an item in 2014 and famously adopted an egg that was abandoned by another couple a year later.

In a press release, London Zoo explained: "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 smitten duo share their home with 91 other penguins, including fellow same sex couples Nadja and Zimmer and Dev and Martin.

One-year-old baby penguin Rainbow who hatched during Pride celebrations last year, also lives in the enclosure and will celebrate her first birthday this weekend.

The enclosure's makeover is designed to pay homage to Stonewall’s ‘Get Over It’ campaign. Read more via The Sun
