DENVER — The Denver Zoo said Tuesday that a same-sex flamingo couple living at the zoo has been together for several years.
Both flamingos are named after LGBT icons: Freddie Mercury and Lance Bass.
In a Facebook post, the zoo said Lance Bass is a Chilean flamingo and Freddie Mercury is an American Flamingo.
“While these two males won’t be able to have a chick of their own, they are able to act as surrogate parents if a breeding pair is unable to raise their chick for any reason,” the zoo said.
The singer Lance Bass posted about the flamingos on his Twitter account:
