Gays Take Street As Their Own

Roman homos claimed a slice of the historic city yesterday. Led by gay group Aricay, several hundred men and women gathered at Via San Giovani in Laterno and renamed it “Gay Street”. Sodomy Street simple didn’t have the same ring and now gay street will be “point of reference for the gay and lesbian community.”

The move comes as activists continue to protest last week’s arrest of two men kissing outside The Colosseum. The couple claims they only kissed, but Roman police insist their action went further than a simple lip lock. Hundreds of gays staged a kiss-in last week and plan to do the same this weekend.

See? Activism can be sexy…
