Brunos Gagliasso Macho Kiss

Bruno Gagliasso and João Vicente de Caso, two of Brazil’s hottest actors  kissed on-stage at Brazil’s GQ Men of the Year Awards in Rio de Janeiro to make a statement against homophobia and machismo.

Gagliasso at one time was the star on the Brazilian soap América, which was set to air Brazilian television’s first gay kiss, between Gagliasso and another actor  in November .  But at the last minute the network censored the kiss  causing an uproar from viewers and prompting a  kiss-in demonstration.
