As we celebrate this year’s International Dog Day, let take a look at some incredible dogs who really showed their Pride!

Dogs have been a huge part of many famous LGBT+ people’s lives. Ellen Degeneres is well known for her love of animals, she and Portia have numerous pets at home but most recently Portia set up The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund.

Elton John had a long friendship with his dog Arthur who unfortunately passed away last month. During a concert in Vegas, Elton dedicated ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ to his beloved pet.

Every year at the Pride Parade, some of the finest allies to come out in force are our dogs who march pridefully by our sides.

Here are some of the best in show from around the web!
