A new campaign is on the rise and it’s causing people to pucker—for a kiss! In response to Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and her refusal to issue marriage licenses, comedians have created a way to bring people (and their lips) together to send messages of love and tolerance to Kim Davis and others like her.
YouTubers, Matt Ott, Jericho Davidson, and Mike Albanese, straight guys from the YouTube channel, The Other Stuff, said in an interview with Huff Post, “”I think there’s a way to address people that you disagree with that can be civil. This is hopefully fun and civil.”
Their way of addressing Kim Davis is encouraging others to send messages of love like, “Love Will Always Wins” and compliments to Kim Davis. They then encourage people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, to kiss someone (friend or significant other), take a photo or video, upload it, and use the hashtag #KissesForKim. Their aim for uploading these videos: “To let Kim know that she cannot win. And that we also love her and think she’s beautiful.”
If you want to be a part of this loving and tolerant campaign, check out the video and some of the pictures on Twitter below.

However, all things are possible if you set your mind to them. Those that prioritize their fitness nearly...
With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
