Hundreds of LGBT people have flocked to the capital of Peru to stage a mass “kissathon”. LGBT couples from across the country reportedly staged the event as a protest to demand equal rights for same-sex couples in the country. Couples that attended engaged in a prolonged period of kissing, that is deemed “inappropriate” by a majority of the staunch catholic and conservative groups in the country. “The streets of Peru are for all, regardless of sexual orientation. Therefore kisses, whether homosexual or heterosexual, should be seen as a normal behavior and not as inappropriate,” a group who helped organise the protest said.
