Right Now...

Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello, students @ The College of New Jersey, attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Continuous Kiss, on the college campus. The currently stands @ 32 hours, 7 minutes, 14 seconds. Can they do it?

Matty and Bobby Kiss 

They are attempting to 'Queer the Guiness World Records' (some more) in campaign of student activism in support of LGBTQ equal rights.

Matty and Bobby will attempt to break the world record for longest recorded "Longest Continuous Kiss". The record is currently held in Germany as of Valentine's day 2009, by Nikola Matovic and Kristina Reinhart, and was last held in the United States in 2001. The record currently stands @ 32 hours 7 minutes and 14 seconds. The record has never before been held by a homosexual coupling. Matty and Bobby plan to be the first pair of men to change that.

Join Matty and Bobby during these days to support the uprising of the GLBTQ community, in an effort of student activism, and in support of equal rights for every individual regardless of sexual orientation or gender, with an event that is sure to show the American community, and the world, that a kiss between two men (and women) can be so simple.

After years of fighting bigotry and discrimination, it's time to put down our words and demonstrate otherwise. When there's nothing left to say, say it with a kiss.

Lately, it feels as though the LGBTQ community has come down to a breathy fight for equal rights to pass approval for gay marriage and to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". The media insists upon "outing" celebrities who wish to keep their private lives away from tabloid pages. Meanwhile, the promiscuous acts of gay celebrities are splashed across magazines and online "buzz" blogs. 
It's time to change that, with a kiss. What's more simple than a kiss? A kiss between two friends. Between two lovers. The kiss of a Mother or Father saying goodnight. The kisses we give as Hello or Goodbye. A kiss to say "I Love You" or "I Care". A kiss to wake the sleeping Prince or Princess when the apple is rotten. A kiss to turn the frog handsome and beautiful. A kiss we blow threw the air, hoping it is caught. Or a kiss we keep safe inside a piece of chocolate, so the butterflies in our stomachs can feel its joy too. 
Because a kiss is the loudest thing we can say with our lips, without ever having to say anything at all.
