Weird World: London Zoo is holding a Pride party for its gay penguins

Disneynature's all-new feature film "Penguins" is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind "Bears" and "Chimpanzee," Disneynature's "Penguins" opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

London Zoo is holding a Pride party for its gay penguins.

To coincide with the city’s main Pride Parade next month, zookeepers are throwing a special event for their penguins that are in same-sex relationships and the occasion includes the animals being given special banners reading ‘Some penguins are gay, get over it’ – a reference to Stonewall’s ‘Get Over It’ campaign. According to CNN, to celebrate the pair and similar animal couples, the zoo plans to give a “Pride makeover” to its Zoo Night event on July 5. In addition to regularly scheduled Zoo Night festivities, the zoo will teach about gender, mating, and same-sex animal pairings.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that two penguins named Ronnie and Reggie were co-parenting a chick and the zoo have confirmed that the couple are as “strong as ever” and can’t wait to celebrate the day.

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.”

Ronnie and Reggie aren’t the only gay animals at the zoo and the pair shares their enclosure with fellow LGBTQ penguins Nadja and Zimmer and Dev and Martin.
