Wales' only gay penguins celebrate pride month at Pembrokeshire zoo

Meet madly in love Macaroni penguins Frankie and Vinnie from Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo in Pembrokeshire. The adorable gay couple became official after their strong friendship blossomed into a relationship as Penguin Keeper at the zoo Caroline Davies explains; “Like all great romances, they started off as friends, and they kind of got a little bit closer, a little bit closer, and now they are and absolute amazing couple together… We kind of knew they were a proper couple because they were allopreening and that basically is penguin kissing.” Vinnie is the toy boy in the relationship aged 6, and Vinnie is 12 and thoroughly enjoy beach walks in their enclosure. In the future the zoo keepers would love to see Frankie and Vinnie adopt an egg so that they can raise a chick as their own.
