national coming out day and we all missed it. who knew? and what a coincidence this happened Sat.

A year or two ago you may recall a story about an older couple who ran a B&B and refused to give rooms to unmarried couples. In that case the couple were of the odd variety and so not surprisingly they made a federal case of it. Stonewall involved. Of course they were.  Water under the news bridge now. The couple subject to all sorts of the abuse you’d expect of scum and a fine and near financial ruin plus, the old boy was also sick (heart) in hosp.
It wasn’t rocket science to work out that the Christian couple were stitched up from the get go. 

Well, we all missed the great event. I had no idea it was even an event or a special day.
But it was.  Saturday was Natl. Coming Out Day.  Isn’t that cute?  They have their own flag.  A special colour.  (purple?) and now I learn they have a special day too.  Soon they’ll be pushing to make it another bank holiday to honor them. 
Anyway, what happened this time was .....


Sainsbury’s told lesbian couple to stop kissing or leave supermarket after customer complained

Annabelle Sacher said she and girlfriend were told to leave store in Brighton
Claims that she lightly kissed her girlfriend on the cheek while shopping
Security guard said a customer had complained that they were ‘disgusting’
Sainsbury’s has now apologised and donated to charity of couple’s choice

By Neil Sears and Emily Kent Smith

Student Annabelle Sacher was shopping in her local Sainsbury’s when she decided to give her girlfriend a spontaneous peck on the cheek.

One fellow customer, however, didn’t see the ‘light kiss’ as a romantic gesture – and reported the couple to a security guard who allegedly then told them to leave.

The female guard explained that the shopper had complained that the lesbian clinch was ‘disgusting’, and that she was ‘worried for her child’.

Infuriated, the 22-year-old reported the incident to fellow gay rights activists online, declaring that Sainsbury’s was guilty of perpetrating a hate crime and that she had a ‘human right’ to kiss in the supermarket.

The row began on Saturday – which was National Coming Out Day – in a Sainsbury’s in Brighton, a town known for its vibrant gay scene.

In a post on gay rights charity Stonewall’s Facebook page, Miss Sacher said: ‘The security guard later apologised, saying that she herself was gay and had simply been asked to speak to us by another customer who found us “disgusting” and was “worried for her child”.

‘I felt sorry for the guard. However, the fact is that she perpetrated a hate crime on behalf of Sainsbury’s.

‘My partner and myself should not have been made to feel humiliated simply because we were two women. It is our legal and human right to express ourselves and today Sainsbury’s took that right away and made me feel like a lesser human being.’

The English literature student at Sussex University in Brighton added: ‘I am outraged and deeply humiliated by this incident.’

Last night a Sainsbury’s spokesman said that it had made a full apology, promised similar incidents would not happen again and said it had paid money to a charity of Miss Sacher’s choice.

The spokesman denied the security guard had told Miss Sacher to leave, and instead asked her to stop kissing, but apologised for her treatment all the same.

‘This should never have happened – it is clear that she and her partner were not behaving inappropriately and we are very sorry that they were treated in this way,’ the spokesman said.

‘We have called her to apologise and will be making a donation to a charity of her choice.’

Miss Sacher, who is originally from Hampstead Garden Suburb, north London – where she was brought up by her leading lawyer father Jonathan, 59, and estate agent mother Marla, 55, in a £3million house – said she was delighted with the response. She has since made the supermarket one of her ‘favourites’ on Facebook.

Gee, I wonder what charity (?) she had monies donated to. Hmmm. Tuff one.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
