Mass Kiss-in Protest at a UK Supermarket

Hundreds of students and supporters of equal rights held a mass kiss-in at a UK supermarket after a lesbian couple were told to stop kissing on Coming Out Day.

In response, they held a mass kiss-in in the very same branch of Sainsbury's where a chaste kiss was branded 'inappropriate' by a security guard.

Annabelle Paige, a 22-year-old student at the University of Sussex, said she gave her girlfriend a light kiss and then a security guard came over to say they could either stop showing signs of affection or be thrown out.

Sainsbury's apologized to Paige, donating a reported £100 ($160, €125) to a charity of her choice.

But the University of Sussex Students’ Union were not happy, saying this was not enough to show the supermarket is battling homophobia.
