2012 watershed kisses

With the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, these are important photos for LGBT visibility in the US military. I don't have anything similar for 2012 in Canada since our history is different. Gays have been able to serve openly since 1992 and the first gay service member to marry was in 2004. The first wedding between two gay military personnel took place at Nova Scotia's Canadian Forces Base Greenwood in 2005.
