Lesbian Couple Share Navy's First Kiss

History was made today, wonderful news. Story here:
As the homecoming drew near, the crew and ship’s family readiness group sold $1 raffle tickets for the first kiss. Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta bought 50 - which is actually fewer than many people buy, she said, so she was surprised Monday to find out she'd won.

Her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, was waiting when she crossed the brow.

They kissed. The crowd cheered. And with that, another vestige of the policy that forced gays to serve in secrecy vanished.

Update, 9:45 pm: The NBC Nightly News covers the kiss and other aspects of our post-DADT military:

Good for them! And to think that these Republicans would bring back Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Russ Manley said...

Right. But even the head of the Marine Corps has said it's totally not a problem at all now, so I can't imagine anyone actually bringing back DADT, short of a fascist revolution.
