A gay kiss in the 2014 Commonwealth opening ceremony has been hailed as a snub to homophobia in Commonwealth countries.
Openly gay entertainer John Barrowman kissed a male "bride" at a mock Gretna Green during the Opening Ceremony at Celtic Park last night.
Out of the 53 Commonwealth countries represented at the Games 42 criminalise homosexuality in some way.
Many people took to Twitter to praise the kiss, which came hours after Deputy Prime Minster Nick Clegg called for greater protection for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people around the globe.
Fergal McFerran tweeted: "John Barrowman's kiss was important beyond symbolism, it's still illegal to be gay in 42 of the 53 #Commonwealth Countries"
Nicola 'Nikki' Coles wrote: "Watch Glasgow snub homophobic nations with John Barrowman gay kiss during opening ceremony."
Pop princess Kylie stole the show as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Jamaican sprinter said the only negative at the Commonwealth Games was the weather, as he hailed the "brilliant" event in Glasgow.
Pop princess Kylie will be top of the bill tonight as the Commonwealth Games comes to a close.
