Watch the Sweet Reaction to the First Same-Sex Kiss on an NHL Kiss Cam
At Thursday’s game between the L.A. Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs in Los Angeles, the NHL reached a small, but special milestone.
When the notorious Kiss Cam landed on a same-sex couple for what was reportedly the first time, two adorable men locked lips in a sweet, passionate kiss – and the crowd erupted in cheers.
The pair, Brad Parr and Andy Evans, told Outsports that they had actually been hoping to get the Kiss Cam’s attention.
The tonsil hockey topped off an already cute date night for the twosome. “It was a particularly sweet night since the Kings were playing and beat my hometown Toronto,” Parr said. “My parents and siblings live in L.A. but the rest of my family think I am a terrible traitor for being a Kings fan.”
The camera-ready two maintain their hunk statuses by completing triathlons, and are currently raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s team at the 2016 Lavaman Triathlon.
The Kings’ game kiss came months after a gay couple shared a heartfelt moment on the Kiss Cam at Dodger Stadium in L.A.
