Internet Responds To Orlando Shooting With Beautiful Photos Of #TwoMenKissing

Following Sunday's mass shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub, people are responding with a beautiful hashtag to prove love really is just love.

On Sunday morning, 50 people were killed, including the shooter, and dozens more were injured when gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Orlando's Pulse nightclub. Mateen's father later stated the attack was a result of his son being upset after seeing two men kissing.

“We’re apologizing for the whole incident,” said the family's statement. “We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country. This had nothing to do with religion.”

Online, men of all races and ages responded by flooding social media sites images of themselves and their loves ones sharing a sweet kiss alongside the hashtag #TwoMenKissing. From wedding photos to vacation photos to just kissing selfies, #TwoMenKissing is truly showing another side to this heartbreaking story.
