In the Canadian Navy, when a mission comes
to an end there is a raffle. The winner of the raffle can invite their partner
to their arrival site for the official "first kiss" of returning
sailors. A crowd gathered at CFB Esquimalt in Victoria, B.C. burst into
cheers after Master Seaman Francis Legare walked off HMCS Winnipeg and toward
his waiting partner, Corey Vautour. It was the Canadian navy's first gay
male "first kiss." Swoon! I love my country.
