Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade earns praise for broadcasting same-sex kiss

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is making history.

During a performance celebrating the new Broadway musical “The Prom,” actresses Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla shared a smooch, a moment that is believed to be the first kiss between a lesbian couple broadcast during the Macy’s holiday event.

“The first #LGBTQ kiss in the Parade’s history,” cast member Josh Lamon tweeted. “We here at @ThePromMusical have never been so proud.

“The Prom” debuted in New York in October, telling the story of an Indiana high school student who wasn’t allowed to bring her girlfriend to prom.

User @TinaLandau said she shared tears of joy: “Two girls. Just kissed. On live TV. On the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I suddenly cried. Lovely. Thanks given to @ThePromMusical. (& Macy’s/NBC.) & lesbians everywhere. & turkeys. For their sacrifice. But esp. @ThePromMusical.”
