On Saturday at 2pm EDT, kiss someone you love.
The Nationwide Kiss-In will be this Saturday in the U.S. and Canada. All of this smooching will be done as a demonstration against the recent arrests of same-sex couples that showed this simple act of love in public places.
Some cities have organized events. Check the listing below and for more details go to Queers United.
UPDATE: Anti Kissing groups are sending out their message, read here at the Bilerico Project Blog. These people need to get a life for fcksake.
