According to sources at the Birmingham Police Department, TV network ABC has been performing a week-long social experiment that involves sending out same-sex couples into public to kiss while reactions from others can be studied.
The project was first brought to the attention of the local FOX affiliate by a Southside merchant who noticed an RV parked downtown. When one of their reporters went over to to talk to one of the "actors," he said "Yes, we are working for ABC News."
3-4 reports expressing disgust at seeing the male actors kissing were received, according to a South Precinct officer, who added the setup isn't illegal, and that ABC has an RV parking permit.
ABC has not responded to requests for comment.
