Gay Marines Kiss

February 28, 2012 by staff 

Gay Marines Kiss, A WELCOME home kiss between a marine and his boyfriend on his return from Afghanistan has become famous worldwide after a picture of it was posted online. Sgt Brandon Morgan was snapped as he jumped into the arms of Dalan Wells at a homecoming ceremony at his Hawaii base.

The photo became an instant internet hit after it was posted on the Gay Marines Facebook page. And a supporter wrote: “As a veteran of the US Army it brings tears to my eyes to see you be able to express your love without fear. God bless you and your BF.”

Sgt Morgan, from Oakdale, California, responded to comments: “To everyone who has responded in a positive way. My partner and I want to say thank you.

“We didn’t do this to get famous, or something like that; we did this cause after three deployments and four years knowing each other, we finally told each other how we felt.”

The display of affection came five months after the US Army’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy expired.

It had previously banned publicly gay men and women from serving in the military. Now servicemen and women can be open about who they love.

Sgt Morgan was not the first. He and his boyfriend followed in the footsteps of Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta who in December became the first lsbn to kiss her girlfriend at a homecoming ceremony.

    Religion is becoming a wedge issue to justify all sorts of hatred and division. No wonder I don’t want organized religion in politics and I don’t want it embedded in our laws. Religion is a choice, being gay is not! Hate is a choice as well. So I really am glad these men had the opportunity to be who they are regardless of some stupid religious doctrin or someone’s stupid bias. Religious views should never interphere with the dignity or rights of another person. So my hat goes off to these boys. Welcome home!
