Taking a cue from the recent viral First Kiss video that took over the web last week, the Gay Women Channel gives us First Gay Hug, A Homophobic Experiment. Pairing homophobes with gay strangers for an embrace creates some very awkward moments to say the least.

Although developed as a parody of the First Kiss video and cast with some actors, the creators maintain that it is unscripted and they intended to make a point. “We didn’t just want to do a spoof but do a version that had meaning behind it,” said Sarah Rotella, one of the creators of The Gay Women Channel, in an interview with USA TODAY.

Point well made.
