The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is making history.

During a performance celebrating the new Broadway musical "The Prom", actresses Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla shared a kiss, a moment believed to be the first kiss between a lesbian couple broadcast during the Macy & # 39; ; s.

"The first #LGBTQ kiss in the history of Parade", cast member Josh Lamon tweeted "Here at @ ThePromMusical we have never been so proud. #LoveIsLove".

"The Prom" debuted in New York in October and told the story of an Indiana high school student who was not allowed to take her girlfriend to the prom.

The kiss provoked many positive reactions from the LGBTQ community.

The user @TinaLandau said she shared tears of joy: "Two girls, just kissed, on live television, at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, I suddenly cried, lovely, thanks to @ThePromMusical. (And Macy & # 39; s / NBC.) And lesbians everywhere. & Turkeys, for their sacrifice, but especially @ThePromMusical. "

@Melissaradz exclaimed "YES YES YES". "Wait, that performance from The Prom – it was the first time that a kiss between two women was aired during #MacysParade?!?!"

@Pumpkindino said she is grateful for the moment: "I finally live in a world where national television is not ashamed to show this in a large-scale event."
