Kiss hate goodbye!
To mark IDAHO and to launch the next phase of the Enough Is Enough! ACTION Against Homophobia campaign, we’re asking you to Kiss Hate Goodbye!
This is your chance to make a big statement on LGB&T hate crime and intolerance and give it some lip!
Inspired by The Great Global Kiss-in which took place on IDAHO 2010, we want to unite against hate, intolerance, inequality and injustice by creating an atmosphere in which couples can show their love and affection for one another in a positive and powerful way.
So much hatred can come out of people’s mouths directed at our communities that we want to try and redress the balance by showing how people can get together and do something fun and impactful to challenge those who think that lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people should not be allowed to show their love for each other in public.
It's time to pucker up!
How can you get involved?
FLASHMOB - Manchester Kiss-in
The LGF will be hosting a ‘kissing’ Flashmob in Manchester City Centre on Saturday 18th May 1-2pm, so come and take part!
You don’t have to go for a full on snog, join us for hand holding, cheek pecking, hugging and any other (legal!) display of affection.
So get your lips lubed, your breath minty fresh and put this date in your diary! Follow the Twitter hashtag #KissH8 to find out what’s happening. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The details are out!!! => 'Like' our Facebook page to find out where and when you need to come and pucker up!
Organise your own
We’re also asking you to organise your own Flashmob, and we’ll send you a goody pack with everything you need to know. You can download the quick fact sheet on this page too! For more information and your free goody pack, email email@example.com.
Send us a kiss!
Email or tweet us in a picture or video of you, your friends, family or partner pouting, posing, or puckering up to show your support! We’ll be putting together a gallery of images and the best ones will be part of a display.
We can send you a postcard with some fab rainbow lips on to help you pose – so get in touch while stocks last!
Please support the campaign; why not give depending on whether you decide to have a peck, snog or use tongues! We suggest £3 for a peck, £5 for a snog and £10 for a full-on tongue sandwich!
