'The Fosters' Features Same-Sex Kiss Between Two 13-Year-Olds, Possibly Youngest In US TV History: VIDEO

Fosters

Last night's episode of ABC Family's The Fosters saw a same-sex kiss between thirteen-year-old boys Jude and Connor, which may be the youngest same-sex kiss ever to be seen on US television. Executive Producer and show creator Peter Paige (whom you may recall from Queer As Folk) tweeted about the kiss, the history it made and how the moment shared between Jude and Connor (or #Jonnor as their social media fans know them) captures the "exquisite torture" of falling for someone in Jr. High and not being sure if that love is unrequited or not:

#Jonnor fans were not shy in sharing their elation over the kiss. 

The tension between Jude and Connor had been building for sometime on the show, as BuzzFeed notes. Jude is one of five children that live with a lesbian couple that have built a family composed of five biological, adopted and foster children. Jude and Connor first grew close when Connor wore nail polish to school to show solidarity with Jude who had been bullied for painting his nails.

Things got a little more intense when the two went on a camping trip, sharing a tent and doing something that was vaguely referred to by Jude as "something that was wrong...I guess." Then, the pair upped the cuteness factor by interlocking pinkies whilst watching a movie (flanked by girls, sadly).

Pinkies

But all of this became too much for poor love-stricken Jude who finally confronted Connor about what happened that night in the tent in the woods and everything that had been building since:

“You kissed me! Remember? In the tent? And then at the movie theatre you held my hand. And now all day you’ve been…I just… I don’t get this. I don’t get you.”

And then, Connor took matters into his own hands and the kiss happened. Watch for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP...

Male Models Heat Up New York Fashion Week With Steamy Kiss: VIDEO

Kiss

Guests at Moncler Grenoble's show at New York Fashion Week were treated to a special Valentine's Day treat: a same-sex make out session between two of the show's male models. 

The show took place on V Day and, as the The Wall Street Journal notes, was "a Valentine’s Day love fest" where all the show's models were paired up for an end of show smooch:

he Supreme’s “Baby Love” and other retro love tunes played in the background. A bride and a groom in a puffer dress and a tuxedo ended the show, along with their fellow models, as all love stories do: with a kiss.

Of course, our eyes weren't exactly focused on the bride and groom so much as they were on the two men overcoming the obstacle of some rather serious headgear to share a nice, long kiss.

Gay Couple Makes History With Navy's First Man-on-Man Homecoming Kiss: VIDEO

Sawicki and Brier kiss

After a seven-month WestPac deployment, the USS San Francisco (SSN 711) submarine warship returned home to Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego yesterday. With every return comes the ceremonial "first kiss" of sailors disembarking from the vessel, and Monday's kiss was particularly notable as it was the first time ever a male same-sex couple was chosen. Petty Officer 2nd Class Thomas Sawicki received nothing but support from his shipmates when the announcement was made that he had won the lottery, and while his boyfriend Shawn Brier was worried about screwing it up by falling into the water, the kiss went off without a hitch.

Lesbians Protest Anti-Gay Russian Lawmaker with Airplane Kiss: PHOTO

Milonov kiss protest

With the general social climate in Russia one wouldn't be faulted for assuming that the country is naught but 6.6 million square miles of homophobia and the Baba Yaga, but every now and then glimmers of hope float to the surface. In this instance the Instagram account of infinitykseniya has photographic evidence of a woman who took advantage of a rare opportunity to make her distaste for the vile homophobia of Vitaly Milonov known.

Milonov, of course, is the author of St. Petersburg's law banning gay 'propaganda' which became the basis of the national law.

On a flight from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Kseniya noticed that the notorious lawmaker was sitting behind her and decided that was the perfect time to take a selfie...while making out with her girlfriend. According to Meduza, the caption of the Instagram photo read:

Who’s that behind us??? MILONOV! But we don’t give a sh*t! We’re flying to our favorite [lesbian] club Infinity

She later wrote on her VKontakte page in greater detail about the events on the plane:

Lots of people are asking me about my last post: did we really go and kiss in front of Milonov? Was it really Milonov? Maybe it was just somebody who looked like him? What was the flight like? and so on. Here are my answers: Yes it was really Milonov! As fate would have it, he was sitting in the row right behind us. The whole flight from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Milonov said nothing to us. We staged the photoshoot in front of him, and he hid behind his tablet, when he realized. We’re all super happy. Him—probably not so much. But who cares! Attached is the rest of the photoshoot. #milonov #antihomophobia

Milonov responded with his usual sense of class and decorum by calling the women inhuman animals, demanding they be blacklisted from flying, and threatening to call the Cossacks, the ultra-Orthodox group who brutally beat Pussy Riot about this time last year.

Canadian School Under Fire for Hiding Student Mural of 2 Boys Kissing After Complaints Surface

Mural1

Students at Onoway Jr/Sr High School in Edmonton, Alberta are pushing back against an administrative decision to cover up one student's mural depicting two boys kissing, CBC reports:

"At the time we should have put more thought into the bigger picture," said principal James Trodden.

"There are a bunch of issues … What is appropriate? Should it be in a school, should you allow kissing?" he asked.

"Should you allow same sex couples to have a picture of kissing?"

The mural was hidden from view with a bulletin board, but students angry with the censorship removed the board Thursday. The mural is uncovered for now and the principal has said he hasn't yet decided if it will stay up when classes resume Monday. 

On Friday, a Facebook group entitled "Petition for OHS painting" was created to help build support for 16-year-old Kaela Wilton's mural. 

CTV News reports:

WiltonWilton told CTV Edmonton that when she pitched the concept a few weeks ago, her art teacher and principal gave their approval. Her painting, which features two men embracing and exchanging a kiss, was inspired by her desire to deliver a positive message about gay rights.

"I wanted to do something controversial," she said.

"Gay rights are something I've always felt strongly about," she added.

The school has a long tradition of allowing art students to empress themselves on school walls.

Wilton is in the process of creating a cover up for the mural in case it is censored permanently. She added:

"I want the comfortable to feel uncomfortable and the uncomfortable to feel comfortable."

Lesbians Ordered to Leave Vienna Cafe After Kissing

Café Pruckel vienna Austria

A lesbian couple was ordered to leave a cafe in Vienna, Austria last week after they shared a kiss which was deemed appropriate “in a brothel,” reports Pink News.

The couple, Eva Prewein and Anastasia Lopez, were told to leave Café Prückel after a waiter refused to serve them.

When they complained to the manager, they were told that kissing belongs “in a brothel and not in a traditional coffee house."

Around 2,000 people have indicated they intend to take part in a kiss-in protest planned at the cafe this coming Friday.

Café Prückel claims to "offer everything a Viennese coffee house has made world famous" - excluding a welcome for LGBT customers it would appear.

In June of last year, Austria's first openly gay politician, Ulrike Lunacek, was attacked with acid at Vienna's Rainbow Parade.
