Same-Sex Kiss Day: One question they forgot…


A grassroots group is encouraging a “Same-Sex Kiss Day” at Starbucks. The idea: LGBT couples show up at a Starbucks on April 15, 2009 (aka Tax Day), order a coffee or other luxury item, and kiss as a way to raise awareness on the unequal tax status of unmarried same-sex couples.

One question the decidedly elitist organizers forgot to include in their FAQs: What if my town or city has no Starbucks?

  1. Yeah, =I wondered the same thing, Matt. because my town doesn’t have one either…This just cracked me up, though. Some “java” for thought, this morning…

  2. That is impossible. Everywhere has a Starbucks, if not seven of them.

      Completely elitist.

      No… it isn’t impossible. There are plenty of places without a Starbucks. My hometown of Winston-Salem didn’t get one until I was a senior in high school (2004).

    We have too many around here, in DC. Of course, Eugene told me that St. Petersburg, Russia, where he’s from, just opened their “Second” one in the city. My, what a shock! Soon, they’ll be over-crowded. Of course, they are not very gay-friendly there…so I doubt they’ll have any kind of same-sex kiss day. Muah!

    Instead of specifying Starbucks they should have just said “Your favorite local coffeeshop, cafe or sandwich shop.”
    I mean…I got Starbucks all around me but I never go there, not when there are independent locally-owned places to go to instead.

    • Matt says:

      Local, independently-owned places are always the best. When I was still in high school in Winston, I hung out at a Starbucks a lot. Since moving to Greensboro for college, then Charlotte, I’ve really loved the local places like Tate St. in GSO and Common Market in CLT.
