As some of you will know, earlier this week two men were asked to leave a pub in Soho, London, after kissing whilst on a date. Whilst the landlord insists it was due to decency and nothing to do with the fact that they were two men, the couple and witnesses say the kissing was nothing more than a few pecks that shouldn't have raised any eyebrows. Move forward a few days, and last night hundreds of people gathered outside the pub (which had closed early that day) to kiss outside in protest. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-13096519 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-13087715 I have been pleased to see the response has been almost universally critical of the landlord. As far as I know there was no counter-protest and no homophobic behaviour yesterday. Plus, the police are investigating the incident to see if it was illegal discrimination. Although I don't like to see two people (any two people) engaging in some kind of marathon game of tonsil tennis at the next table that is not what happened here. Furthermore, a man and a women doing that would probably cause an eye-roll or two and maybe a "get a room" but probably wouldn't be thrown out. All in all, it is sad that such an event happened, but great to see the overwhelming majority of the public disgusted by the landlord's behaviour.
