Is Main Street USA Ready for Gay Public Displays of Affection

In spite of some disturbing bystander reactions, I still found enough in this video to give me hope that times are changing and people are becoming more accepting -- even in Birmingham, Alabama!

Here is how ABC describes this social experiment:

Two years ago, ABC News hired two actors, a man and a woman, to publicly display their affection for each other by kissing in public at a restaurant. Reactions from other restaurant-goers varied; some onlookers enjoyed the sight of young love, while others lost their appetite.

This year, they once again decided to explore how the public responds to public displays of affection -- but this time, the couples were gay.
