MANILA, Philippines -- A photo of celebrity models Isabelle Daza and Georgina Wilson kissing is making the rounds on social media.

The photo, posted by Daza on the image-sharing service Instagram on Thursday, shows the 25-year-old model and her 27-year-old cousin kissing on the lips.

In the photo's accompanying caption, Daza thanked photographer Mark Nicdao for "our take on equality for gay rights."

Only hours after it was posted, the photo already got more than 8,000 likes and 400 comments, with some tagging it as "incestuous." Others, meanwhile, considered it a show of support for the recent "victory" of the LGBT community in the United States.

The controversial image was posted a day after the landmark ruling of the US Supreme Court on laws related to same-sex marriage.

The high court on Wednesday nullified the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which deprives federal benefits to same-sex couples.

It also ruled against Proposition 8, which clears the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.

Daza is in a relationship with football player Adrien Semblat, while Wilson is in a relationship with model Borgy Manotoc.
