During the torch relay, a long journey across Brazil, where multiple people took turns carrying the Olympic Flame to Rio, an un-named couple paused to show each other some love in the gay friendly neighborhood of Ipanema. (Insert “gay flame” joke here.) Photographer and reporter Pedro Verissimo caught the moment and shared it. There’s always time for a kiss, especially when the world is watching.
On a side note, also carrying the torch was a trans woman, Laerte Coutinho, who was the only openly transgender person (we know of) to take part in the torch relay.
