Homophobes hug gay people in parody First Kiss video

Following the viral success of the First Kiss video uploaded to YouTube this week, the Gay Women Channel has recorded its own version, with alleged homophobes hugging gay people

Homophobes hug gay people in parody First Kiss video
16 March 2014

The First Kiss video uploaded onto YouTube on Monday (10 March) has spawned many imitators and parody attempts, the latest of which shows homophobes and gay people hugging it out on camera.

First Kiss was presented by WREN and currently has over 57 million views. The film shows 20 strangers, of different ages, races and sexual orientations, kissing on camera.

The Gay Women Channel yesterday (15 March) uploaded their own take on the idea, titled First Gay Hug (A Homophobic Experiment).

Captioned ‘First Kiss? We took it up a notch.’ and ‘We asked homophobes to hug gay strangers for the first time’, it is unclear whether the people in the video are actors or not.

Similar to the original, it shows the progression from awkward introductions to two strangers hugging.

While some of the alleged homophobes warm to their gay hugging partner fairly quickly, others still don’t seem too sure.

One man even gives the other a quick kiss on the cheek, before saying: ‘You seem like a cool guy, I just – I think your whole sex thing is a little gross.’

The video has amassed over 57,000 views in the past day.

Real or not, it’s worth a watch.
