First Kiss” was an experiment that put strangers together and asked them to kiss. Next came “First Sniff,” which was an adorable take on dogs meeting for the first time. Now “First Hug” is a powerful follow-up that puts homophobic people together with gay individuals and asks them to hug.

As you’ll see in the video, it’s a very awkward encounter for some. So painfully awkward at times that it’s hard to watch, in fact. Yet each of the pairs end their encounter with a hug, and SPOILER ALERT: they all came out okay.
