Gay Pride: Even Lions Are Homosexual

Homosexuality is rife within the animal kingdom. In recent years, scientists such as Bruce Bagemihl have opened our eyes to the fact that species from octopuses and dolphins to rams and giraffes have same-sex relations. It's still vaguely shocking, however, to see that most macho of creatures, the male lion openly indulging in what Oscar Wilde called 'the love that dare not speak its name'. Males, apparently, have sex together while they hunt for available females, and are thoroughly uninhibited about it too. Watch this Youtube video clip and you'll never use the phrase gay pride in the same way again.
