In response to the controversy caused by Michael Sam’s affectionate draft day celebration with his boyfriend this weekend, a “kiss in” on Facebook and Twitter has begun.
Journalist Michelangelo Signorile published a call-to-action today, urging people to change their profile pictures to same-sex couples kissing.
I hereby launch the Great Facebook Kiss-In, urging everyone -- whether gay, straight or bi -- to change their profile pics to two women kissing or two men kissing. Maybe it's you and your husband or wife, or your partner or sweetheart, or you and a friend. Maybe it's your dad and your dad, or your mom and your mom. Maybe it's two other people you just like a lot or think are hot. Your favorite celebrities, whatever. [...] Just change your profile pic to a kissing same-sex couple, and urge others to do the same.
