The musical «the Prom», which premiered this month, tells the story of a gay American in the village, which was not permitted to take his girlfriend to prom. When several famous actors from new York will know about the incident, they travel to Indiana to support the couple.

Conservative group ForAmerica has also been outraged by a kiss during the parade. She stated that same-sex kiss broadcast live, violated innocence «of millions of little children», but faced a backlash on Twitter.

Millions of small children just watched two girls kiss and had their innocence broken this morning. @nbc and @Macys just blindsided parents who expected this to be a family program, so they could push their agenda on little kids. #macysthanksgivingdayparade #MacysDayParade

«This is a family program. Not all families look the same. Well, that all the children see it,» wrote one of the spectators.

Others have argued that it is more likely that the innocence of American children have been violated as a result of the epidemic of gun violence and mass shootings.

Rusa LGBT co-Director and founder of Brighton-beach-Pride Alexey Gorshkov also shared with of my thoughts:

«I think this event is certainly important, because it demonstrates one example of the destruction of the conspiracy of silence regarding LGBTIQ. Moreover, given the specificity of the festival/parade (after all, it’s not gay pride), which is traditionally considered the family, appearance in the sight of same-sex couples makes clear that families are different. And that LGBTIQ people are no different from others — they have their own family and its values. Sadly, gone for so many years that the society has been able to understand the simple truth. Although we are still far from serinate».
