Add this share

imagePucker up, folks. Details for the Atlanta event tied into the Great Nationwide Kiss-In are now set.

The effort, hoping to call attention to the July 9 arrest of a gay couple after locking lips near Salt Lake City’s Mormon church temple, already includes events in nearly four-dozen cities across the U.S. on Aug. 15 at 2 p.m. The Atlanta event, according to a Facebook event invitation sent Wednesday evening, will take place in front of the visitor center at Piedmont Park.

The kiss-in may also include an event in Athens, though no details have been released.
