Love wins again.

Posted on

During D.C. Pride last weekend, Officer D.J. Stalter decided to take a stand against the hateful protesting by the Westboro Baptist Church by kissing his boyfriend in front of the group's homophobic protest signs.

Stalter's boyfriend, Mark Raimondo, also shared a picture of the two fighting the hate with love on his Instagram:


"Warm welcomes from WBC. Happy Pride," he wrote.

Fortunately, Raimondo's followers were all for the couple's kissing protest.

"Love will overcome," one user wrote.
