And a lot of people were very happy.

The kiss was good. Maybe we just have John Barrowman making out with someone for the closing ceremony. #Glasgow2014

A gay kiss in the opening ceremony of a competition featuring half of Africa. We're nothing if not fearless in Glasgow.

This graphic was shared widely as well to show the significance of the kiss.

Did you know that it's illegal to be gay in 42 of 53 Commonwealth countries. #Glasgow2014 #2014Ceremony
