A cruise ship in San Francisco with gay couples has gone viral after it was featured on an expedia website.
The photo shows the captain of the luxury cruise ship, St. Jude Cruises, standing next to two men on a boat in San Rafael, Calif., on April 23, 2017.
The men are gay, according to an expository posting on the Expedia website and the video of the encounter.
The video shows the man kissing the captain on the cheek and saying, “I love you.”
He then pulls the captain into a kiss on the lips and a hug.
The man’s partner is standing next them.
The captain has been photographed kissing the couple before and after the photo was taken.
The couple was wearing traditional outfits and posed with their hands in their pockets.
The Expedia posting did not include the video.
The two men in the photo are identified as Steve and James Schwinn, a gay couple who are married.
In a Facebook post, the couple wrote that they are now “trying to figure out how to reconcile their family history with the fact that we are married and living in San Diego.”
The couple said they were happy to have been photographed.
“It is a very beautiful moment and we hope to share it with others,” they wrote.
The photo has been viewed more than 30,000 times and has received nearly 600,000 shares on Facebook.
In the Facebook post that prompted the viral video, the Schwins thanked the San Francisco gay community for the “kind words and support.”
The post included a photo of a photo from a previous trip they took to San Francisco.
The Schwin family said in a statement that they were “embarrassed and saddened” by the photo.
The family said they are proud of their love and the respect they have received from all of their friends and family.
The cruise was part of the Expensys Carnival Cruise Line in June.
