ABC producer Michael Del Moro recounts this sweet prom moment from over the weekend.

One. Step. Forward. As Buzzfeed recounted in a recent story, ABC producer Michel Del Moro was walking the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, New Jersey with his boyfriend, mom, and sister over the weekend when he spotted high school prom attendees walking home from the high school dance.

As he documented on Twitter, while walking, a group of "rowdy "bros" started yelling at every couple who passed beneath the rooftop bar they were at, obnoxiously yelling "KISS HER!" in every apparent couple that passed by.

When a gay couple passed by, while Del Moro was "worried something might happen," the bros in question quickly switched from saying "KISS HER" to "KISS HIM." Well, the two young men kissed, and the rooftop crew apparently starting cheering, In a Tweet, Del Moro said, "Both the rooftop crew and everyone else on the boardwalk just went absolutely wild for them and we all breathed a sigh of relief."

While this is a great step forward, homophobia and discrimination exists everywhere.

In the Buzzfeed interview, one of the boys said: It's south Jersey, Guys pick on us for being gay, explained Theodore Vidal, a junior at Lacey High School.

That said, after this moment, Vidal's boyfriend Colin Beyers said, "It's an area where you normally would get discriminated against and the fact that those guys cheered us on was shocking. It's one of those small victories that makes the hard times worth it. "
