Gay Men Walk Holding Hands in Portugal & Get Very Different Response Than in Jerusalem | Video

First off, how adorable are these two! Very refreshing to see the social experiment of two men holding hands in public with a positive and hopeful turnout. One minus hate and anger. We saw what happened in Russia, Gay Couple Gets Punch, Kicked, and Pepper Sprayed for Holding on Hands in the Ukraine (Watch here)

lorenzo and pedro write on their Youtube Page:

After we watch 2 Social Experiment videos from Russia and Ukraine, where a Gay couple walking in the streets is insulted and attacked, we were horrified! (links below)

So we decided to do the same experience they did, but in Lisbon Portugal! So we could show them how real civilized people behaves in society!

Think gay globally, act locally to make a difference!

 

And then below is a different response in Jerusalem. Towleroad reports:

With the city of Jerusalem in the news following the anti-gay attack at a July 30 gay pride parade, two guys decided to emulate the hand-holding social experiment that recently took place in Ukraine and Russia and see how people on the streets reacted to same-sex PDA.

Sadly, a good number of the bystander comments shown in the footage were ugly and abusive.
