Straight actor Bruno Gagliasso kisses another man to protest toxic ‘machismo’

Brazilian social media is on fire today after two of the country’s most famous (straight) actors shared a kiss on TV.

Bruno Gagliasso shared this picture on Instagram of him kissing fellow actor João Vicente de Castro at the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2015 at Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro on Thursday.

Gagliasso (on the left) says the kiss goes out to all the ‘macho card-carriers, hypocritical and prejudiced’, to show there’s nothing wrong with showing ‘our affection and love’ for another man.

The post has received over 80,000 likes and almost 19,000 comments on Instagram.

The actor is straight and married, but has a history of being pro-LGBT. He played Roberto Júnior in the Brazilian soap opera América: a gay character.
