Chicago Cabbie Sued for Kicking Gay Couple Out of Taxi For Kissing

Cab

Back in June, we reported on a Chicago cabbie who tried to force Steven White and his boyfriend Matt McCrea from his cab on the side of the rain-drenched Kennedy Expressway after they kissed briefly in the back seat. CBS Chicago reported then:

During the ride, McCrea "leaned over to look at something on the phone and then he leaned in to kiss me," White recalls.

McCrea says it was a closed-mouth kiss that lasted all of a second. It did not go over well with their cab driver, the two men say. "He indicated that it was a public mode of transportation and we shouldn't kiss in his cab," White says. "He pulled the cab over and stopped and wanted us to get out - on the Kennedy."

Now, Lambda Legal has filed a complaint on behalf of the couple:

"A taxi-cab company, like any other business in Illinois that offers services to the public, is bound by the Illinois Human Rights Act to not discriminate based on sexual orientation, among other protected categories," said Christopher Clark, Senior Staff Attorney for Lambda Legal. "What happened to Steven and Matthew was not only hurtful and unlawful, it illustrates exactly why Illinois' citizens need the state's long-standing Human Rights Act to protect them against dangerous situations like this."

At the time, the cab driver claimed the couple was "making sex," but police found no evidence to support that claim.

ABC's Revenge once again ended its episode this week by diving further into the intrigue between Justin Hartley (Patrick) and Gabriel Mann (Nolan). How far will they take it?

Watch the clip, AFTER THE JUMP...

Writes Hollywood Life:

Nolan and Patrick had one hot kiss in the last episode and Nolan was ready for more. When he went to talk to Patrick, Patrick confronted him about how he knew he was gay. Nolan attributed it to a “well-caliberated gay-dar,” but Nolan didn’t buy it. He found out that Nolan went to his ex-wife and paid her for information. Patrick said he doesn’t play games and stomped off.

Later, Nolan told Patrick about his trust issues and admitted he screwed up by going behind his back. He asked for one more chance, if Patrick was willing to give one. Yes, please!

See last week's here.

Marco Feliciano, a Brazilian lawmaker and pastor, ordered two women arrested at Glorifica Litoral, an evangelical festival in mid-September in the city of São Sebastião,

Feliciano stopped the event to make the arrest, Opposing Views reports:

“Those two girls have to leave here handcuffed” said Feliciano, who is also president of the House Commission for Human Rights and Minorities. “No use trying to run; guards are headed there now. This here isn’t a place where anything goes. It’s the house of God.”

The two young women, Yunka Mihura, 20, and Joana Palhares, 18, were taken by the Municipal Civil Guard to the First District Police Station of São Sebastião. Mihura and Palhares claimed that they were physically assaulted by the police during the incident, PRI reported.

During an interview after their arrest, the women said they had kissed multiple times during the event and that nobody seemed to mind. “The event was public, paid for with our taxes,” Mihura said. “That stage, that microphone, everything was with public money. It was also an open space, on Beach Street. It was our right to be there.”

WNBA Players Receive Personal Fouls After On-Court Kiss: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-09-27 at 2.27.04 PM

Nothing but a little friendly competition right? Context via USA Today:

Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus were defending each other during Thursday night's WNBA conference finals game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Phoenix Mercury. As the commentators note, Taurasi and Augustus have known each other for a very long time and there is genuine affection to complement the competition.

Apparently, that affection crossed the line for the referee Thursday night. Both players were called for fouls after squaring up and then pecking each other on the cheek.

Seemed pretty harmless to me.
