Navy ladies share groundbreaking first kiss

Meet Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta and her girlfriend Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell. They’ve just made history with a kiss.

This holiday season, thousands of veterans will return home form Iraq and Afghanistan (and various other locales). For the men and women of the Navy, that means pulling into harbor getting that first kiss from the person you love the most. Oftentimes, the ship will raffle off the chance to get off early and secure that first smack on the lips.

Gaeta bought fifty raffle tickets and won (don’t worry, the money goes to a good cause). She and Snell became the first same-sex couple engage in that very public, premiere lip-lock. And the crowd went wild.

So long, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
