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.
