Crowd Reaction To This Kiss Cam Smooch Shows We’ve Come A Long Way (VIDEO/IMAGE)

Sometimes it feels like we have so far to go, but we need to stop and realize how far we’ve come regarding LGBT equality.

All too often, it becomes easy to focus on the negative aspects of striving towards full equality and acceptance within a culture that not so long ago wouldn’t even tolerate the existence of gay people. However, what needs to be remembered is that within this society, gay individuals are being seen more and more as equals amongst their peers — as they should be — because they are.

Recently, at a Los Angeles Dodgers game while they were playing the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium, the kiss cam did what it always does — find couples within the crowd to focus on until they give their partner a smoocheroo. Well, one of the couples that the camera focused on was a same-sex couple, and in front of the entire stadium on the big screen, they shared a kiss.

The reaction? More cheers than any other couple kissing that evening. It’s pretty amazing to see. Wonderful, in fact.

The person who posted the video of the kiss on YouTube said it’s the first same-sex kiss at Dodger Stadium, but I find that hard to believe as they host LGBT Night Out‘s every year. However, during a regular season game that is not an LGBT specific event? This is pretty darn fantastic.

Just last week, same-sex marriage arguments were being made at the Supreme Court, and a majority of Americans want the Court to rule in favor of making same-sex marriage legal nationwide and eliminating all state bans as they violate same-sex couples Constitutional rights of being treated equally under the law.

This wonderful video is further proof that we have, most definitely, come a long way.
