Gay Photo Of The Year

The Washington Post goes to the same place most of us did when first viewing the top photo.
The tenderness of Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta and her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, echoes Alfred Eisenstaedt’s famous image of a soldier kissing a nurse on V-J (Victory Over Japan) Day in Times Square, 1945. Gaeta’s and the anonymous WWII sailor’s body language and poses are strikingly similar: Each leans in, supporting their partner at the neck and lower back. The difference is in the recipient of their affection.
Let's hope the photographer of the top image is already working to license the image. I want it on a t-shirt, a mousepad, you name it.
