True love is blind for ages, colors, genders… and the most important thing it doesn’t give a damn about the time. This gay couple from Florida made the Internet emotional and talk about this when they recently shared their recreated pride Photo 24 Years Later.
Nick Cardello, 54, and Kurt English, 52, met in 1992. They’ve been together ever since and that makes an exactly quarter of the century this year. Funny thing is people used to tell them back then all the time that their relationship is just a phase. Obviously, they were wrong.
Cardello and English’s 25th anniversary was significant for many obvious reasons and the couple decided to celebrate it by attending recent the Equality March in Washington, DC. As the March was approaching they started to share more and more photos of them from the past and one of them was Cardello kissing English when they attended the March on Washington in 1993.
“Most of [the photos] have been kind of generic — a lot of people get kind of sensitive to seeing images of gay men kissing, so I’ve always resisted posting them on social media,” Cardello explained.
This year, however, he decided it was “important for people to see that image.”

This is so necessary. For young gays to see old gays happy, in love, and proud. Thank you for giving me a bit of hope for the future

They lasted longer than most straight people's marriages.

I used to be intensely homophobic, then I grew up and realized love is love. I'm not homosexual, but I will stand up for anyone who is.

I have the right to post gay love as much as you have the right to post pointless hate. pic.twitter.com/LUaAPaALwG
