Photographer Hennessey Vandheur captured the moment two women kissed at a an anti-Trump protest.


He told HelloGiggles: “Walking in the trump protests last night in Manhattan was absolutely incredible. this was probably my favourite moment from the entire night and I’m happy to have been there to capture it.

“Love in the midst of chaos and uncertainty. We stand together, against the hate in this country right now – and nothing will put out the fire in our hearts. I stand with our brothers and sisters, POC and LGBTQ, women, immigrants, and everyone else whose lives and well-beings trump endangers.”

According to reports, the two women kisisng are Laura Hetherington and Giovanna Barba, who are girlfriends.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Hetherington said: “Protesting was just as much about coming together and providing support and emotional understanding for each other.”

Remember that time Trump stood up for gay people and Mexicans?
