Everybody loves Openly Gay Pets.
That handle and sister Insta Openly Gay Animals count over 1.4 million followers among them, including drag superstar Panda Dulce, DJ sensation Flume, and fashion whisperer Bruce Pask, Men’s director at Bergdorf Goodman and Nieman Marcus, who may or may not be looking for fur-lined inspiration.
We scoured the two animal-obsessed reels for the most utterly heartwarming (mostly) mammalian moments, and found: donkeys are really popular this season (see “The Banshees of Inisherin”), cat slaps never go out of style, and interspecies mingling is always the best.
Is there anything really gay about the two accounts? Nothing in particular except the rainbow chew toys they link to, and that all the creatures are super cute.
Behold the Openly Gay Animals.
