“It’s a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings — one lucky sailor is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a loved one. Today, for the first time [according to the Navy], the happily reunited couple was gay.”

Here’s the full story.

Thanks @amelapay for sharing!

    Oh I can just hear my red-neck relatives groaning and cursing.

    It’s wonderful to see this!

  2. Nemo Says:

    Apparently the straight male sailors have been lobbying for this for years.

  3. Alan Says:

    I’m finding Nemo to be tanked on this one.

    Still great to see love publicly celebrated in all dimensions.

  6. Respect for the Navy!
