The photograph 'Kissing Sailor' by Alfred Eisenstaedt entrenched itself in history by capturing the exuberance people felt at the conclusion of the World War I after Japan surrended. The photograph had a US Navy soldier kissing a stranger nurse in a white dress in the middle of Times Square, New York.
Fast forward to 2018, a Navy sailor recreated the same historic photograph by kissing his husband, that was met with homophobic backlash.
The Navy sailor, Bryan Woodington returned home to Florida after spending seven months in Persian Gulf and Europe and kissed his husband, Keeneth Woodington.
The ceremonial first kiss, a navy tradition was captured on Jacksonville station in Florida, although it did not go down with a few viewers, social media was still brimming with love as people came out to support the couple and their lovely homecoming moment, shrugging off the negativity.
