It started with a kiss

It started with a kiss - on a first date between two men in a pub in Soho, central London's gay heartland.

From that moment, neither James nor Jonathan could have imagined in their wildest dreams the events that would unfold in the next 48 hours.

Two nights later, the John Snow pub had locked its doors and hundreds of people had gathered outside to stage a 'kiss-in'.

They were protesting against allegations that the landlord had thrown them out because he thought their kissing was "obscene".

Here's my BBC News feature which includes exclusive interviews with James and Jonathan.

And here's my live radio report from the scene for BBC London News.
