Whether battling homophobia, book bans, or frump-a-dump Kim Davis, kissing has proven to be a surprisingly effective form of protest.

Case in point: Saturday’s well-attended “kiss-in” at Sainsburys, a supermarket in London that made headlines last week after one of its security officers told a gay couple that holding hands inside the store was inappropriate.

As Towleroad reports, 32-year-old Thomas Rees and his partner Josh Bradwell were “beckoned over” by the security guard while grocery shopping.

According to The Guardian, the couple was floored by the sheer amount of people who showed up last weekend to show their support:

“The number that turned out was absolutely insane, we were not expecting this at all,” Bradwell said.

“We were right to be holding hands because when someone questions your behaviour in such a direct manner you can’t help but analyse how you are perceived by society,” said Rees.

“When your community come behind and say ‘you were right and you are right’, all that does is amplify your feelings. We were right to complain and do what we’ve done and fight those people who said we were wrong.”

At least one member of the public shouted at the group to “get off my street”, but the protesters were undeterred.
