The Great Facebook Kiss-In

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 1:59 PM

Michelangelo Signorile wants you to show your support for football player Michael Sam—and your contempt for the people who are still freaking out about Sam kissing his boyfriend—by changing your profile pics on Facebook and Twitter:

"Gay people need to be kissing more in public. There simply needs to be more queer smooching to desensitize the world. So with that, I hereby launch the Great Facebook Kiss-In, urging everyone—whether gay, straight or bi—to change their profile pics to two women kissing or two men kissing. Maybe it's you and your husband or wife, or your partner or sweetheart, or you and a friend. Maybe it's your dad and your dad, or your mom and your mom. Maybe it's two other people you just like a lot or you think are hot. Just change your profile pic to a kissing same-sex couple, and urge others to do the same. And for that matter let's do it on Twitter, too. One day in the future we will look back on all this ridiculousness and laugh. But that's only going to happen if we do exactly this kind of thing a lot. So change those profile photos now."
