Gay Pride: Two male lions were photographed romancing in the wild in Africa


As if we need any more proof that you can't help who you fall in love with, we're taking a leaf out of the animal kingdom's book with this adorable story that's made us smile this morning.

We have always been a fan of lions, ever since the days of Scar and Pride Rock – did anyone else have a weird crush on grown-up Simba, or was that just us? – but never imagined that Mufasa would be caught in a loving embrace with anyone other than Sarabi.

These lions prove otherwise when they were captured on camera by a Belgian lawyer taking in the sights of Kwando, Botswana.

told the Huffington Post:

According to our guide they had only started their behaviour that same week. These intruder males had pushed out the resident males earlier in the year and the other female lions had headed into the Mopani woodlands, an area difficult to access with a safari vehicle. Only one lioness was seen in the centre of the concession where the male lions were and the lions showed no interest in the lioness leading to the assumption that she may have been pregnant.

Research has shown that the animal kingdom is no stranger to homosexuality, with around 450 species enjoying same-sex bonding, relying on heterosexuality just to procreate. So next time someone tries to claim there's no such thing as homosexuality in the animal world, you better tell them that they're lion.

The Guardian Liberty Voice: “No species has been found in which homosexual behavior has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis. Moreover, a part of the animal kingdom is hermaphroditic, truly bisexual. For them, homosexuality is not an issue.”

Plan your own trip to Africa and be sure to add in a safari.
