Join The #KissIn Campaign To Support Michael Sam
Social media users are joining the #KissIn campaign to support Michael Sam by changing their profile pictures.
Users, “whether gay, straight or bi” have been asked to change their profile pictures to same-sex couples kissing.
Last week, Michael Sam became the first openly gay football player drafted in the NFL. In a recorded moment of pure emotion, he repeatedly kissed his same sex partner.
Sadly, the special moment has faced some criticism. To combat this criticism, journalist Michelangelo Signorile, created the #KissIn campaign.
“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.”
Signorile believes that,
“Gay people need to be kissing more in public. There simply needs to be more queer smooching to desensitize the world.”
Many Twitter uses have already joined the campaign including this daughter of two Dads.
