Lesbian couple ‘told to stop kissing at baseball game’ Staff Writer June 17, 2011

A lesbian couple say they were told off by a security guard for sharing a brief kiss at a Minnesota Twins baseball game.

Taylor Campione and Kelsi Culpepper, from Minneapolis, say the Target Field guard told them: “We don’t play grab-ass here” and ordered them to “adhere to the ten commandments”.

Speaking to the City Pages, Ms Campione said of the May 27th incident: “That ruined our entire evening. We were super upset, we felt super uncomfortable.”

The couple complained to management at the stadium and Minnesota Twins spokesman Kevin Smith condemned the unnamed guard’s behaviour as “unacceptable”.

He added that the man would received a “verbal and written reprimand”.
