Isabelle Daza kissed fellow IT girl Georgina Wilson and thousands of netizens liked it.
The photo of the lips-to-lips kiss, which Isabelle posted on Instagram, made the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders) community proud.
Isabelle captioned it with “take on equality for gay rights.”
Apparently, the cousins’ gesture is in reference to the US Supreme Court’s ruling last Wednesday, June 26, which nullified the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8—two laws that went against same-sex marriage.
But don’t get the gorgeous models wrong. Both are in a heterosexual relationship. Twenty-five-year-old Isabelle is with football player Adrien Semblat, while her 27-year-old cousin is Borgy Manotoc’s girlfriend.
As of this posting, the photo has almost 9,000 likes and close to 500 comments—with mixed reactions ranging from "incestuous" to a good try to “stay relevant.”

Looks like ace photographer Mark Nicdao’s work mirrors that ofTime Magazine’s April 8 cover where photographer Peter Hapak took shots of two couples (Russell Hart and Eric LaBonte and Sarah Kate Ellis-Henderson and Kristen Ellis-Henderson) kissing.The women were married in New York City and are raising two children. The California-based men, meanwhile, are engaged and waiting for same-sex marriage to be legal.
