Young black gay love on a train

Black love on a train

The photo of two young black men in a casual embrace on what appears to be a MARTA train has stirred up a blogosphere storm as some people take to hating the photo, accusing black men of being on the “down low” and a reason for higher rates of HIV in the African-American demographic.

Huh?

The photo, apparently posted in a tweet by “WatchJ” has been viewed more than 21,000 times. WatchJ is apparently no fan of the gays — he titled the twitpic, “I DON’T GIVE A FUCK HOW SLEEPY YOU ARE” with the hashtag #NoExcuse.

I first saw this photo on a friend’s Facebook page and thought it was a beautiful image of regular life in Atlanta — two young black gay men showing affection toward each other.
