LGBT Brazilians pucker up to protest Pope’s visit

July 23, 2013

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.
