Master Seaman Francis Legare won a raffle to be the first off the ship to kiss someone he loves as part of a navy homecoming tradition.When his ship HMCS Winnipeg docked in Victoria, Legare gave a kiss to his partner, Corey Vautour. In this case, it was a kiss that made Canadian history by being the first same-sex kiss between men. 

This isn't the first same-sex kiss shared in the Canadian Navy ever. That honor goes to a female member of the navy and her partner in 2015 at CFB Esquimalt, according to The Star.

Navy photographer Ignacio Perez captured the above image Tuesday of the USS John C. Stennis passing through a rainbow in the Pacific Ocean.

“As a photographer I am used to documenting operational events like aircraft launches and recoveries,” he told CNN. “But when I saw the rainbow I was excited because it was different. I knew the odds of the ship passing near another rainbow were pretty slim.”
