Pope Francis made his first papal trip to South America  Monday, heading to Brazil for World Youth Day, where he was greeted by thousands of well-wishers — and a gay kiss-in. LGBT demonstrators along the papal cavalcade smooched with their partners as the pope wended his way through the packed streets in protest of the Vatican’s policy on — well, really, where do you start?

This won’t be the first beijaco, or kiss-in, during the pope’s visit. LGBT protesters will be kissing during the pope’s major address on Thursday on Copacabana beach.
