Default Same Sex Kiss-In

In preparation for the national Same Sex Kiss Day, there was a Same Sex Kiss-In on Fountain Square today in Cincinnati. The mayor made a brief speech and started our famous fountain (you can see it in the intro to WKRP In Cincinnati) in honor of the beginning of spring. When the fountain went on, a group of 'Mos and their supporters kissed their same sex partners, loves, and/or friends. I went with my best friend and two of her children. We had a very good time and it was so neat being that open in the heart of Cincinnati--something that surely doesn't happen often.

I have photos, but I haven't pulled them from my camera yet.

Great idea and I am glad you had fun! How accepting is Cincinnati? Most people here in London (except in smaller neighbourhoods with a significant Christian population) generally don't mind same-sex kisses in public, though they often gawk at fat people. >:/

I am looking forward to the pictures!

there are pockets of acceptance, but it's a very closed area.

In 1993, 60% of voters in the area passed Issue 3, the charter amendment barring the city from protecting gays and lesbians from discrimination. Now, it's been fought against and the US Supreme Court said "no" to it, but that's how the people here see things--not all of them, but enough.

Our fountain,
Getting ready for the kiss-in,
Watching the post-kiss-in fireworks

My best friend trying (successfully, I might add) to pull off an "emo" photo,
The two of us canoodling.

I didn't get any photos of the actual kissing of the kiss-in because I was, well, kissing.... yup.

Thanks for the link, I didn't even know about Same Sex Kiss Day.
I'd love to participate but have no one to smooch.
I love when they do things like this and bring it to the public. See? It's just a little kiss. Gay people are just like everyone else. And it shouldn't be such a shock to see them doing everyday things that straight people take for granted.
I've always thought that if you saw more things like this then it would become the norm and people wouldn't make such a fuss about it.
