Bruno Gagliasso and Joao Vicente de Castro, two of Brazil‘s most famous actors, shared a rather long and by the looks of it, wet, kiss on stage at the Brazilian GQ Men of the Year Awards in Rio de Janeiro.
The straight-identifying celebrities say they wanted to make a stand against homophobia and machismo, showing that it’s OK for guys to be openly affectionate towards one another.
Gagliasso posted a photo of the kiss to his Instagram, dedicating the smooch to all the “macho card-carriers, hypocritical and prejudiced.”
Gagliasso has been a long-time supporter of LGBTQ rights, and has played a gay character on a popular Brazilian soap. In the past he’s spoken out against the machismo culture that spreads the idea that being anything other than straight devalues one’s “manliness.”
