Fans cheer as Canadian man kisses boyfriend on L.A. Kings ‘Kiss Cam’

Pop Goes The News — Canadian lawyer Brad Parr made  history last week when he smooched his boyfriend for the Kiss Cam at an L.A. Kings game.

The crowd inside the Staples Center cheered when Parr and Andy Evans kissed while being shown on the big screen.

Parr, a native of Toronto, tweeted that he was certain it was the first gay kiss at a Kings game and one of the first in the NHL.

“We were happy,” Parr declared. Evans tweeted that he was “beyond excited” about the moment.

On social media, fans took notice.

The lip-lock came during a break in the Jan. 7 match between L.A. and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Parr is an associate at Glaser Weil who has lived in Los Angeles for 17 years. Evans is an actor from New Orleans.


The two men are avid runners currently collecting pledges for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society ahead of the 2016 Lavaman Triathlon.

Last May, the Los Angeles Dodgers showed a same-sex couple on the Kiss Cam.

The smooch made headlines, even though the San Francisco Giants did it four years earlier.
