Montreal "Make Out" Protest To Take Over Saint-Denis Street Tomorrow

Photo cred - Tumblr

Montreal, it's time to make out with each other to create a better city for all citizens, no matter their sexual preferences. To make a more accepting city, P!NK BLOC Montreal, in response to recent (albeit allegedly) homophobic incidents in the Latin Quarter, is organizing the "KISS IN: For a Quartier Latin without homophobia or Lesbophobia!"

The Latin Quarter KISS IN is an event designed to showcase that all forms of love, whether it be between a man and woman, man and man, or woman and woman, should be socially acceptable. All are invited to take to the streets of the Latin Quarter, grab a kissing partner (or two) and show some love.

As you may have guessed, the KISS IN is in response to the St. Sulpice incident of last week, where two male college students were supposedly kicked out for making out with one another. There are many sides to this story, so it would be wrong to blame any of those involved as the primary catalyst for this movement.

Still, no one can deny the sheer number of people affected by the themes of the incident, thus alluding to a much larger issue of homo/lesbophobia in the area, and the city. The Village shouldn't be the only designated place where same-sex couples can fully be themselves and show affection, and that's what the KISS IN is trying to change.

So on Friday night at the corner of Maisonneuve and St. Denis, right at 7pm, be ready to kiss. No matter if you're gay, straight, bi, or anything else, share a kiss that will hopefully make a difference.

To get all the details, head over to the official facebook event page here.
