    Lisbon isn't known to be some homophobic city. They have gay marriage etc for a while.

    Nothing will restore my faith in humanity, especially not this... It's just positive propaganda with some smart editing. Highlight the positives only and you portray a good image.

    And even if, acceptance and love should be something people have by default, not something that is a special trait, restoring your faith in humanity. The very fact that a video like this is considered special and goes viral shows mankind has a looong way to go.

    More shitty clickbait.

    Don't waste your time following their wild, romantic, groundbreaking headlines. It's all the same shit.

    How the times have changed. I remember hugging and kissing a white guy in a Boston "gay" pub in 1974 and having some of the other white men there actually complaining out loud that I ought to stick with my own kind.

    So good that there has been evolution...

    I got married in Cascais, Portugal last week. I kissed and hugged my husband multiple times in Lisbon with no issues whatsoever but i also wasnt expecting any problems at all since Portugal is not known for being homophobic.

    Btw, I live in Toronto and it is the exact same shit, gay couples walk around holding hands without expecting any negative reaction. Civil society exists and Im glad I live in a place where I never felt discriminated or mistreated over my sexual orientation.

    I thought men held hands in some countries as a sign of friendship or respect.

    In the USA it's different obviously but I don't see the point of holding hands besides walking with someone you want to keep near you if you are walking in a crowded area where you could separate

    Whatever you just said made no sense whatsoever. This is like saying that you don't see the point of kissing unless you are attempting a cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    How people express mild signs of afection to each other is none of your business and it definitely does not require a practical purpose.
