Denver Zoo tells love story of flamingos Freddie, Lance

DENVER -- With Pride Month being in full swing, what better time to celebrate the love of a pair of same-sex flamingos at the Denver Zoo.

The flamingos are named after two LGBTQ icons- N-Sync band member, Lance Bass and Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury, CNN reports.

Lance is a Chilean flamingo and Freddie is an America flamingo.

The zoo tweeted Tuesday, that the two birds have been a pair for several years.

The two love birds can't have a chick of their own, but zookeepers said the birds could step in as surrogate parents if a breeding pair is unable to raise their chick.
