The First Gay Kiss Cam Moment at Dodger Stadium Met with Cheers
Sometimes small moments have big effects.
15 years ago — in the summer of 2000 to be exact — two women were thrown out of a Los Angeles Dodgers game for kissing, you know by just doing that normal thing that happy couple usually do. Back then, they were thrown out of the game because they were exposing children for their disgusting acts of affection.
Now, we see progress as the people are now cheering a gay couple kissing on the Jumbotron at that same stadium. Sure, it took us more than a decade to get here, but at least we’re here.
Simone-Friedland and his husband, Rick, have been together for nearly 20 years.
“We just went to enjoy a nice day at the field,” Simone-Friedland tells ‘The Advocate’. So when a cameraman approached the couple during the third inning to ask them to be on the Kiss Cam, the men immediately said yes.
