    OSEVILLE (CBS13) – There was a strong show of support at Roseville Galleria on Saturday for a gay couple asked to leave the mall recently because they had been holding hands and kissing.

    Hundreds of gay rights activists showed up for the peaceful protest that started with a kiss, but is now gaining national attention.

    “We have every right, just as everyone else does, to feel comfortable in our own skin, loving our partners,” said Robert Woodward, who attended the event titled “Love is Love.”

    Love is love was the theme for a gathering that started off as a protest.

    Shara Murphy, executive director of the Sacramento LGBT Community Center said the goal of the event was “to understand why the community was hurt by their response.”

    The LGBT community is now helping the mall move forward after a security guard asked a gay couple to leave for being affectionate

    Murphy says she also hopes he mall will “have more training for their employees, to be a better ally in the community.”

    They might have a better chance at true acceptance if they were less in your face.
    It doesn't stop here, ask San Fransisco where they have trouble with the fudge packers wanting to run around in public naked, even go into restaurants that way.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Just out of curiosity, how is a gay couple holding hands and kissing while at a mall "in your face"?
    "The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

    It's not to me. I'm surprised that this happened in Sacramento, though.

    I'm not. Sacramento is an odd little place.
