The ASDA Kiss-in

 

In the Autumn of 1991 a lesbian couple were expelled from the Asda store in Hyson Green after they kissed each other. As a response,  Nottingham Outrage organised a Kiss-in in November 1991.  The pictures show one of several couples kissing by the Asda checkouts and other people holding banners with the following comments:

 

Asda Supports Discrimination Actively

All Seriously Dissatisfied Actually

It Asda-be pervect

Another Sodmite Demands Acceptance

 

Even the local BBC estimated that at least 100 people took part in the Kiss-in.
