On Friday, television producer Michael Del Moro spotted teens Theodore Vidal and Colin Beyers on walking home after prom along a New Jersey boardwalk as a nearby group called out to multiple passers-by from a bar. There were a crowd of “rowdy bros” shouting from a nearby rooftop bar, calling down to couples below. The boys expected a fight, but they received a pleasant surprise instead. Del Moro wrote that there were a crowd of “rowdy bros” shouting from a nearby rooftop bar, calling down to couples below. Del Moro wrote that he then spotted Vidal and Beyers walking along hand-in-hand, in matching suits, calling them “adorable.” People who heard tons of homophobic slurs did not expect such a compliment. And when the rooftop crew started chanting encouraging them to kiss, they were literally shocked, but it did not stop them from kissing. Del Moro wrote: “After some hesitation, the young men kissed… and let me tell you: both the rooftop crew and everyone else on the boardwalk just went absolutely wild for them and we all breathed a sigh of relief.” The heartwarming thread soon went viral, with many people applauding the moment that was called significant for the whole community.
