A kiss is just a kiss, except when it’s seen all around the world. Two men in Rio de Janeiro locked lips as they carried torches — perhaps for one another? — in the traditional relay to the Olympic stadium.


The unnamed couple have been seen all around the world since the photograph by Pedro Veríssimo was shared on OMGBlog. 

Another photograph, appearing in PinkNews, captured another moment of Olympic history: out transgender woman Laerte Countinho is believed to have been the only trans person to participate in the torch relay.
