XoX 1985 XoX

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by
Thanks to the kind folks at OPIRG Kingston, a piece of local history enter the online world — Anti-Nuke-Kiss-In. I do grin that one of the participant's names morphs from Ford to Fred. The essentials are correct: two men kissing on the steps of City Hall in a make-love-not-war demonstration. The story is part of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group's "People's History Project" and it begins thus
On August 9, 1985, controversy was sparked when a lesbian and gay kiss-in on the steps of Kingston’s City Hall was included as a part of a three-day anti-nuclear vigil to mark the 40th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Elsewhere there's even an audio tour as part of "The Gay and Lesbian History of Kingston, 1940 to 2000" on the Stones [of Kingston] site.
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by
And so for day 1620
