Gay Couple Re-Creates Pride March Selfie

This Couple Re-Created Their Pride March Photo 24 Years Later, and We're Swooning

After 25 years of marriage, one adorable couple are going viral for all the right reasons, and we can't get over how sweet their story is. They take relationship goals to new heights, and the internet totally agrees.

Kurt English, 52, and Nick Cardello, 54, were looking for a way to celebrate their milestone wedding anniversary, so they decided to attend the Equality March in Washington DC together. When the duo arrived at the National Mall for this year's march, they re-created an adorable throwback selfie from when they attended the same event 24 years ago, using the same cheek-kissing pose and all.

Cardello made the before-and-after snapshots into a collage, and it soon spread to Twitter, as one user shared the collage with the apt caption, "it's just a phase." The tweet quickly went viral, garnering more than 600,000 "likes" and more than 150,000 retweets — not to mention the thousands of comments from users who swooned over how these two are the perfect example of true, long-lasting love.

Some people got pretty choked up over how moving their story is.

A few even disclosed their previous homophobic viewpoints.

And possibly best of all, Kurt and Nick's photos inspired other gay Twitter users to share similar pictures to celebrate their own relationships.

Just another reminder that love is love, this month and every damn month.
