The University of Montreal student association (FAÉCUM) is demanding an apology from the Saint-Sulpice bar after two male students were reportedly kicked out for kissing each other. 

The alleged incident happened Friday during a faculty of medicine orientation party at the bar located on Saint-Denis street between Ontario and de Maisonneuve.

The men say they were kicked out by a bouncer without their belongings after kissing in the bar.

“It was just a normal party, with everyone having fun, of course they were kissing, but that’s it,” Vincent Fournier Gosselin, the president of the association said.

Fournier Gosselin says the bar needs to apologize and act to rectify the situation.

“This is a homophobic gesture and it’s important that they send a strong message to every bar owner in Montreal that this kind of behavior is unacceptable.”

Fournier Gosselin  says they are waiting for the bar's response and could organize pressure tactics.

The Saint-Sulpice bar told CJAD they are meeting with witnesses to find out what happened before they comment.

    Depending on the type of kiss it was some things are best done in private, and I am assuming their kiss was past a peck so good to toss them out or any couple for that fact.

    Being left-handed … black or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return ... it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls -- all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

      @MACDONALD BANK Defending your love is one thing but there are other ways to express it in public and being overly physical in my opinion and obviously on the restaurants owners eyes warrant to have this couples sorry asses kicked out. This is not a homophobic comment so before you try to play that card, this comment is intended to make people understand that their were other customers in the restaurant that do not appreciate this kind of behavior and the owner was watching his bottom line by not letting this kind of behavior go on.

      @MACDONALD BANK I don't know about being gay, But I do know that I don't have a choice in the race I am. Speaking as a person in an interracial marriage, Love is about love not about picking a band wagon to jump on to defend.
