The Jezebel!

A 74-year-old gay rights advocate has been charged with simple assault after she planted a kiss on an anti-gay protester in North Carolina.

The incident took place in the town of Salisbury this past Saturday, which was Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Day, by declaration of the town’s mayor.

According to the Associated Press, Joan Parker admits that she kissed preacher James Edward Belcher on the cheek at the event, at which Belcher was one of roughly 200 anti-gay demonstrators who had showed up to protest, despite lacking the proper permits.
