The GREAT NATIONWIDE KISS-IN
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 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. Kissing is a beautiful thing that we share with our loved ones every single day.
Cities across the country will be simultaneously holding "kiss-ins", which will simply be rallies focused on our freedom to kiss in public regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Come with your loved ones to share kisses in any form, or bring some candy kisses to hand out to passerby's! Your show of affection can be anything you wish. Give out hugs and smiles, or kiss up a storm.
Chicago's Kiss-In will happen at the Bean in Millenium Park on Saturday, Augusat 15 at 1:00pm, coinciding with kiss-ins happening in more than 30 other cities around the country!
