Hundreds hold ‘kiss-a-thon’ to support gay couple threatened in Colombia


Hundreds of same-sex couples staged a ‘kiss-a-thon’ in a park in Bogotá, Colombia after a gay couple was attacked there. Santiago Maldonado and Jorge Esteban Farías were targeted by a group of women – one of which wielded a broomstick – after the two kissed in public, the BBC reported. Footage of the incident showed the culprits verbally abusing the couple, with one telling them that “in this neighbourhood we don’t allow sex in the park, especially not in front of children”.
