Gay Sailor’s Big Homecoming Kiss Backlash; Madonna’s Surprise NYE Performance At Stonewall; Ricky Martin’s New Baby

Gay Sailor’s Big Homecoming Kiss Backlash

A gay sailor kissed his husband in public after a 7 month deployment, and it didn’t take long for the backlash to start.

It’s some kind of ceremonial kiss that sailor’s win from their spouses, and this kiss in particular was reminiscent of the famous V-J Day kiss in Time’s Square in the 1940s.

But immediately after the kiss aired on WJXT, viewers began to call in and write angry letters about showing a photo of a gay couple.

There’s a lot more, here. 




Madonna’s Surprise NYE Performance At Stonewall

I’m sure a lot of people loved this one.

No one expected to see Madonna show up and surprise crowds at the infamous Stonewall on New Year’s Eve. 

For those who don’t know, Stonewall is the historic bar in the Village where the LGBT rights movement started in 1969. 
There’s a lot more here at this link.  That would have been interesting to see.
Ricky Martin’s New Baby
I think news like this about Ricky Martin and his family is a perfect follow up to the story above. If it hadn’t been for the Stonewall riots this story about Ricky Martin might never have happened. 
Ricky Martin and his husband just became parents again. This time it’s a baby girl. 
It has been a special time for us and we can’t wait to see where this stellar baby will take us. Both her beautiful brothers and me and Jwan have fallen in love with Lucia.’
