Mr. Gay RI 2016, Joe Di Mauro, has partnered with Options Magazine to launch the #KeepKissing campaign in Rhode Island as the state prepares to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of RI Pride.

In an effort to combat homophobia and spread love at a time when the LGBTQ needs it most, Mr. Gay RI is encouraging individuals to use their social media channels to post photos of LGBTQ people embracing and sharing a kiss. Use the hashtag #keepkissing when posting on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

When asked to comment on the project, Di Mauro said: “Our social media channels provide us with a platform to communicate with the masses. Let’s use them to spread love and show that we’re not hiding. #KeepKissing, and stay fearless.”

Participating is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Grab a friend or loved one who wants to share a kiss.
  2. Snap a photo on your phone.
  3. Upload to your social media channels using the hashtag #keepkissing.
