The national Freedom to Marry organization and LUSH Cosmetics at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta are locking lips to show their support for same-sex marriage.
The “Kiss and Tell” event takes place Saturday at stores across North America.
In Atlanta, same-sex marriage supporters — gay and straight — are asked to gather at the store in Perimeter Mall at 11:38 a.m. and take part in a kiss-in.
The time was specifically chose to represent the number of federal benefits and protections gay couples don’t receive because their marriages are not recognized by the federal government.
Freedom to Marry states on its website it hopes to get at least 1,138 couples kissing in the U.S. and Canada.
Here’s a video of LUSH employees saying why they support same-sex marriage.
