Homosexuality: It’s as natural as the ground beneath your feet and the sun in the sky. Animals are blissfully uninfluenced by pop culture or human parenting, so if homosexuality exists in so many different species of animals, it’s safe to say that gay love is as natural as heterosexual love.
As a little girl, my mom owned two grey female cockatiels.
They weren’t the best playmates (kids shouldn’t be left unattended with birds, anyway!) but they were fun to watch and it was lovely to listen to them sing. One day we found them mating.
“Aren’t they both girls?” I asked.
“Some girls like girls, just like some boys like boys, just like some girls like boys and some boys like girls,” my mom explained simply.
Then I think I went back to what I was doing without a care in the world – and it should be as simple as that.
These animal lovers are proof that homosexual love is just like any other form of love – 100% natural. Please SHARE if you agree!

From nuzzling and caressing members of the same sex to full-on mounting and play-humping, homosexuality in male lions is quite common. Contrary to popular belief, homosexual pairings of lions occur in the wild as well as in captivity.
Silo and Roy were a famous homosexual couple in the Central Park Zoo in NYC. They actually raised an “adopted” egg and a penguin chick together. Prior to being given an egg of their own, the gay penguins attempted to steal eggs from straight penguin couples – that’s how desperate for a family the two were!
Gay Giraffes are a remarkably common phenomena. It was even popularized in the movie The Gladiator when Prospero attempted to mate and sell giraffes that he buys, but gets angry at the guy who sold him queer giraffes. Young male giraffes often have their first sexual encounters with another male even if they move on to practice heterosexuality later in life.
Please SHARE these gay animals if you thinks love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors!
