Watch what happens when 15 homophobic volunteers are challenged to meet 15 gay people for a hug

Remember that First Kiss video that went viral? The Gay Women Channel on YouTube went a step further. They got hold of 15 homophobic volunteers and challenged them to meet 15 gay people for a hug.

It’s strange to think that in this day and age people are so homophobic that they shy away from hugging gay people, but you’ll see in this video how uncomfortable some really are. But as each person goes in for a hug, stereotypes are (almost) crushed. A very interesting watch. Uplifting in some places, upsetting in others.
