2 Dapper Straight Guys Wanted To Feel What It Was Like To Be Gay. The Community Responded.

In just 10 minutes, it's easy to see where we sit as a society.

This is Iain and Justin. They are straight. But they wanted to see what it's like to be a gay couple walking down the street holding hands.

They wondered if people would treat them any differently.


Turns out people did.

Some people turned to look. Some parents shielded their kid's eyes. Others said nasty things to them.

All those things can be upsetting. But hearing one reaction — "Well, it's OK to be gay, but I don't want to see it in my face" — felt the grossest.

Our world is filled to the brim with kissing straight couples, though...

...and we are almost blind to it because we see it so often. In fact, I'd go as far to say you've probably seen at least one kissing couple today. Kissing is in all of our faces, and what's actually wrong with that?

I don't know about you, but I'd rather live in a world where people are expressing their love rather than having to hide it. I mean, really, the world can be a pretty harsh place. Let's focus more on the love and overpower the hate.
