PHOTOS: Hundreds make out in Sainsbury’s to protest as couple told to stop holding hands

Joseph McCormick August 14, 2016

Hundreds of protesters staged a ‘kiss-in’ in Sainsbury’s Hackney branch on Saturday and beyond after a couple said they were warned about “immoral” behaviour after they held hands in the store.

The event aimed to encourage the supermarket to put it’s “money where it’s mouth is” when it comes to tackling homophobia.

Earlier this week, Thomas Rees and boyfriend Josh were shopping in a Hackney branch of the supermarket chain, holding hands as they did.

The pair say they were pulled aside by a security guard after they finished paying for their shopping – and warned that another customer had complained about them holding hands and showing public displays of affection.

See below a selection of photographs from the kiss-in:
