Harassment following Pride Festival leads to "kiss in" protest

itemprop

Last month following the Twin Cities Gay Pride Festival in downtown Minneapolis, we posted a clip of a gay man being followed and harassed by a group of teens yelling anti-gay slurs. Some were even throwing rocks at the man as they followed him.

The incident received a lot of attention in the Twin Cities as many were trying to celebrate the city's acceptance of the GLBT community. To show support for the man featured in the video and protest any tolerance of this type of harassment, a friend organized a "kiss in" protest in downtown Minneapolis.
