Students held a "Big Kiss-In" at a supermarket branch after a lesbian couple were branded ‘disgusting’ and asked to leave the store for kissing.
Dozens of people, including a woman in a wedding dress, descended on the Sainsbury’s store in New England St, Brighton, as customers shopped around them.
Afterwards, the Sussex University student union tweeted: “Great to see people in Brighton and beyond showing we like kissing and hate homophobia.”
Student Annabelle Paige was shopping at the store on Saturday when a customer complained about she and her partner kissing. They were asked to leave by a security guard.
Paige told The Times: “I’m so shocked and upset about it. I get that if another customer is uncomfortable that’s a bad thing… but the problem is the other customer was in the wrong and essentially being homophobic.”
Sainsbury’s later apologised to the couple.
