Gay-Centric Kiss-In Today, Rain or Shine
|Hey! Wait until 5:30, dammit!|
Luckily, the event planners are prepared for the fickle ways of San Francisco's kissers. If it rains, everyone runs like hell from Harvey Milk Plaza down into Castro Station, says co-organizer Gary Virginia.
The speechifying and whatnot is set to start at about 5 p.m.; the kissing commences at roughly 5:30. Virginia hopes random passers-by will double the number of RSVP'd kissers.
The kiss-in is one of dozens worldwide marking the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
Participants are urged to submit their videos (per the one above in guess what city...) to www.youtube.com/group/greatglobalkissin and tag pictures on Flickr with "GreatGlobalKissIn."
Finally, one need not be gay to participate in the day's smooching: "Everyone is welcome," says Virginia. "Homophobia affects bisexual people, transgendered people, and even straight people who are perceived to be gay."
