South African college paper publishes gay kiss…

I recently came across an article on queerty.com about a kiss that had sparked controversy in a college town in South Africa. Alright, before I say anymore the only reason the article struck me was because the link showed a picture of  two attractive individuals sharing an endearing kiss in public, something I might not have had the courage or the strength to do. Apparently the picture was taken during an annual event last month called  Soen in die Laan (Kiss in the Avenue), in a Cape Town university and was published in the local newspaper causing outcry. In any event many of the townspeople were outraged that the newspaper had the nerve to publish such a picture in their local newspaper. The photographer initially stated that he chose the picture because the true and genuine feeling of  honesty that the two people shared.   Mark Dean Brow and Bjorn Czepa , seen in the picture, became sort of role models and figures for acceptance in the college community that had seen fellow college men using the college paper as dart boards and tearing up the paper in protest. Nevertheless, an accident last week took the life of Bjorn Czepa and left the other in critical condition. It is unclear what are the circumstances but I feel at a loss for the families and friends of these two courageous individuals
