Complaints have been made to NBC for airing a lesbian kiss during the Thanksgiving Day parade.
There was a kiss between two women during the Macy’s parade in New York City today (22 November)
Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla kissed during the performance of The Prom, a new musical on Broadway.
It tells the story of a gay girl who is banned from taking her girlfriend to the prom in small town Indiana. But when the news breaks, several queer people from around America flock to Indiana to support the girls’ cause.
It is believed to be the first ever same-sex kiss broadcast during the Thanksgiving Day parade.
