Two taxidermied flamingoes are being resurrected to become gay icons for South Australia’s LGBTIQ+ Feast Festival. The last 2 pink beauties in Oz, Chile and Greater were thought to be males when they were adopted by the gay community. Spoiler alert: Chile was found to be female when she died in 2018…

Last year they were masked. This year, the Three Wise Men have COVID travel passes sorted, so they are cleared to go and see baby Jesus. Who knows what next year holds…
