This Gay Couple's Kiss Cam Moment At A Hockey Game Will Melt Your Heart

The audience's reaction will warm your cold heart.

Meet Los Angeles couple Andy Evans and Brad Parr.

They are pretty loyal L.A. Kings hockey fans.

Parr told OutSports that he and Evans secretly hoped the kiss cam at the Staples Center in Los Angeles would catch them on the big screen during Thursday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The kiss cam catches two surprised couples who give each other quick pecks when they see themselves onscreen.

When Parr and Evans spotted themselves on the Jumbotron, they screamed with joy!

They looked at each other briefly and then locked lips.

The whole crowd then cheered!

"It was a particularly sweet night since the Kings were playing and beat my hometown Toronto," Parr told Outsports. "My parents and siblings live in L.A., but the rest of my family think I am a terrible traitor for being a Kings fan; I've lived in L.A. for 17 years."

The smooch was also the first time the Staples Center kiss cam focused on a gay couple during a Kings game, the team's game entertainment director, Brooklyn Boyars, told BuzzFeed News.

The couple plans to leverage their kiss cam fame to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training as they prepare for the Waikoloa Triathlon in April 2016.

"Let's make an NHL first into something that not only advances gay acceptance, but also helps cure serious diseases that can strike anyone," wrote Evans in a Facebook comment.
