The John Snow pub in London’s Soho closed its doors at 3pm today to stop a gay ‘kiss-in’ protest from going ahead.
The kiss-in was in protest at two gay men being thrown out of the pub earlier in the week for kissing. Jonathan Williams, 26, and Jamie Bull, 23, were enjoying a date when the pub’s landlord asked them to leave the pub.
Protesters have said they may stage a kiss-in street protest outside the pub instead.
Another attempt at a pub kiss-in has been planned for this coming Thursday 21 April.
