'Days Of Our Lives' Gay Kiss: Will And Neil's Steamy Smooch Makes Daytime Soap History

Daytime soap opera "Days of our Lives" made TV history yesterday by airing the show's first same-sex kiss.

Thursday's episode featured Will (played by Chandler Massey) snogging a handsome stranger named Neil (Jesse Kristofferson) outside at a party, Entertainment Weekly is noting. And fortunately for us, the much-hyped moment is actually more of a steamy make-out session than just a smooch!

“After living with self-loathing and disgust over not being able to accept himself, compounded by everything else that is going on in Will’s life, he’s tightly wound,” Massey told Soap Opera Digest, according to Radar Online. "Will allows himself to do something he wouldn’t normally do in a sober situation.”

Fun gay-relevant fact: Jesse Kristofferson's famous father, Kris, co-starred with Barbra Streisand in 1976's "A Star is Born."
