Put on your cherry chapstick and head out to the Great Nationwide Kiss-In today.
Why, you ask? Why are you doing this? After incidents in San Antonio, TX, El Paso, TX and Salt Lake City, UT – where different gay and lesbian couples were harassed or detained by law enforcement or other people for the simple act of kissing in a public place – we need to make a strong statement to everyone everywhere: kissing is not a bad thing, nor has it ever been. It’s not vulgar or inappropriate. It’s a sign of affection that is as old as time itself. And it’s a beautiful thing that we share with our loved ones every single day.
A list of times and locations for your city is at the above link. Feel free to send me your photos and I’ll turn them into a slideshow.
