Gay kiss in pool causes stir in Mexico
Fri Jan 6, 2006 12:36 PM ET

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A gay kiss in a swimming pool, which two men say got them thrown out of a luxury hotel, has caused a stir in traditionally macho Mexico, where open displays of homosexuality are frowned upon.

Gerardo Eliud and his partner, Samir Habdu, told police in Los Cabos, a plush beach resort city popular with U.S. tourists, that security guards beat them up and threw them into the street with their luggage after spotting them kissing in the hotel pool in December.

But when leftist deputies demanded an investigation into the incident in Congress this week, they were angrily shouted down by legislators from other parties who argued the subject was unfit for discussion in the chamber.

The ruckus highlights the discomfort about homosexuality in this predominantly Catholic country, despite recent openness toward gays in some areas.

"It is a question of profound conservatism, intolerance and backwardness," Party of the Democratic Revolution deputy Inti Munoz said of the deputies' reaction.

Congress voted that the issue was not urgent and shelved it in a commission for analysis.

Eliud, a 27-year-old public relations officer who lives with 24-year-old air steward Habdu in Mexico City, said he and his partner only shared a discreet peck.

"It was a two-second kiss, we didn't even touch lips," he said, adding that the couple chose the Hotel Presidente InterContinental because of the stated gay-friendly policy of its parent company.

A spokesman for the hotel said it had documents and witness statements proving the couple's version of the events was false.

He insisted the hotel was gay-friendly and said the pair was thrown out for "making inappropriate advances at other guests."

The hotel in Los Cabos, a magnet for foreign yachters and golfers, pays British group InterContinental Hotels Group Plc, to use its brand. Continued ...

Interestingly enough I have no real comment on this matter. They should take it to the hotel room. Str8 people should do the same. Watching people make out in a public pool no matter if they are gay or str8 is not something I want to see nor do.

Would that be word or weird?

Are you a bit thick?
You say you have no real comment,then demand that people who wish to kiss should get a room.
Since when has a 'peck' been considered making out?
If I want to kiss my kids on the cheek,would that offend you as well?
