LUSH staff, customers and supporters will be puckering up for a purpose this weekend as part of a nationwide ‘Kiss and Tell’ protest. LUSH has invited the public and their pouts down to LUSH stores to kiss in support of marriage for same-sex couples and to sign postcards telling the federal government to end the ongoing discrimination against tens of thousands of couples and families across America. The ‘Kiss and Tell’ will be taking place at LUSH stores across North America at exactly 11:38 a.m. to signify the number of protections, responsibilities and rights that are currently denied to same-sex couples and their families under the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). LUSH, in partnership with Freedom to Marry, is calling on the U.S. federal government to pass the Respect for Marriage Act, which would allow same-sex couples and their families access to the 1,138 civil rights that come with federal marriage recognition and ultimately their right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
