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 kiss elicited many positive reactions from the LGBTQ community.

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.”
