Lesbian Restaurant Kiss OK

A Stockholm restaurant owner who kicked out a lesbian couple after he saw them kissing has been found guilty of unlawful discrimination by an appeals court and ordered to pay one of the women just over 7000 dollars in damages. 

The owner, who was acquitted by a lower court last year, told police he didn’t accept anybody ’making out’ in his restaurant, regardless of their sexual orientation.  The prosecutor, however, said she believed the women were targeted because they were lesbians, and the court agreed. 

One of the women says ’the verdict shows that we have the same right to show each other affection and love as heterosexuals in our society’.
