Over 1,000 people took to Sainsbury’s store in Brighton after it was branded as homophobic earlier this week.
The offence was caused to the LGBT community when a 22-year-old student and her girlfriend were asked to leave the store for kissing in public, with one shopper calling them “disgusting.”
Although Sainsbury’s did apologise for causing offence, and offered the young woman £100 to give to a charity of her choice, the LGBT community was still outraged at the supermarket chain so held an event called “The Big Kiss In” where both straight and LGBT couples filled the aisles of Sainsbury’s to kiss and raise awareness against homophobia.
