Last night at the People’s Choice Awards, Neil Patrick Harris won the award for Favorite Actor in a Comedy TV Series.
I don’t usually watch award shows, and didn’t know much of anything about it until I saw the clip of NPH’s acceptance speech circulating the internet this morning.
The moment is remarkable in that it’s so otherwise unremarkable. Just an expression of love that we see all the time at these awards shows, except this time it’s a gay couple.
There were gay kids across the country watching this happen last night. Seeing one man kiss his partner in the bright lights of national television, then publically acknowledge him in his speech.
The wheel of progress is moving forward quicker with each day.
