kiss & tell

Television’s First Man-on-Man Snog

Before Will & Grace mainstreamed gay professionals, before Sex & the City defined gays as this season’s must-have accessory, and the United States of Tara showcased a gay teen with a (lacking) sex life, there is was: What’s billed as the first-ever kiss between two men on network television. One year later, Jack and Will would finally get around to smooching — in much the same way Brian Patrick Thornton describes his Today show snog with then-boyfriend Rich. It’s a beautiful read. And a lovely kiss.
