Gay Marine And His Civilian Boyfriend Talk About Their Viral Homecoming Kiss On TV

Not five months after the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and we’ve got a viral gay-couple photo, of a Marine named Brandon Morgan jumping in the arms of his partner, Dalan Wells.

“This is a homecoming picture—gay, straight, lesbian, no matter who you are, love is love,” said Morgan when profiled on Hawaiian TV station KHON. “We haven’t fought for more rights or better rights than anyone. We’ve fought for equal rights, and now we have them.”

Said an official Marine Corps spokesperson: “It’s your typical homecoming photo.”

Might be, but we think there’s something special about this one.
