From Coming Out To Holding A Protest, Here Are Five Gay Kisses That Made A Political Statement
If you’re part of the LGBTQ+ community, chances are that your rights and identity have been politicized, debated, and picked apart by complete and total strangers. Small business owners, big corporations, and governments around the world all have something to say about who we date, love, and have sex with. More often than not, these people aren’t LGBTQ+ themselves.
Sometimes, however, we make our own statements. And yes— we do it with style.
Here are five times gay kisses made a political statement.
Eurovision winners Måneskin performing at the Polsat SuperHit Festival
Italian rock group Måneskin recently performed their song “I Wanna Be Your Slave” live in Poland— complete with an on-stage kiss by lead singer Damiano David and guitarist Thomas Raggi. This being in Poland was certainly no coincidence, as the country has been ranked as the worst country in Europe for LGBTQ folks, according to Rainbow Europe.
David said: “We think that everyone should be allowed to do this without any fear. We think that everyone should be completely free to be whoever the f*ck they want. Thank you Poland.”
