This photo of marine Brandon Morgan kissing his boyfriend Dalan after coming home has gone viral with 14,000 “likes” on Facebook and 3,000 comments. Brandon’s reply to this response:
To everyone who has responded in a positive way. My partner and I want to say thank you. Dalan, the giant in the photo, can’t believe how many shares and likes we have gotten on this. We didn’t do this to get famous,or something like that we did this cause after 3 deployments and four years knowing each other, we finally told each other how we felt. As for the haters, let em hate…to quote Kat Williams, everyone needs haters, so let them hate. We are the happiest we have ever been and as for the whole PDA and kissing slash hugging in uniform…it was a homecoming, if the Sergeants Major, Captains, Majors, and Colonels around us didn’t care…then why do you care what these random people have to say? In summation thank you for your love and support. I received a lot of friend requests off this. I don’t just accept requests so if your request was because of this post message me and let me know. Goodnight all, and Semper Fi.
Ain’t nuthin’ wrong with being gay, despite what you’ll hear from social knuckledraggers. Besides, as my friend gruverja says: “If you serve this nation for shitty pay and lousy benefits, possibly at great personal danger to yourself, you should be able to kiss anyone you goddamn want and not to have to take any shit for it.”
(Besides, the guy’s a marine. You gonna give him static for being gay? It’s your funeral.)
