article imageGay couple get booted from a Chicago cab after sharing a kiss

On Monday a gay couple filed a human rights complaint against a Chicago-area taxi company because after they shared a kiss in a cab the driver told them to exit the vehicle.
According to Gawker, the incident occurred in May, when Matthew McCrea, 30, and his partner Steve White, 29, hailed the Sun Taxi cab at the O'Hare airport. On the way to McCrea's Lakeview home they shared a kiss. The taxi driver took notice and pulled the vehicle over on the side of the Kennedy Expressway and told them to leave the cab. He told the couple that they couldn't kiss because it was public transportation.
According to ABC, White said that a heterosexual couple would not have to think twice about exchanging a kiss in public, and this includes inside a taxi cab.
The couple said that the refused to get out on the busy expressway, and the driver brought them to a parking lot off the Cumberland exit. That is where they waited for a police officer to arrive to document the incident.
According to Chicago Sun Times, the cab driver of eight years said that he didn't kick the couple out and he was just annoyed that they would not stop kissing one another.
The cab driver continued to say that he asked them to stop because he could not drive like that because it was raining and he had to drive safely.
The couple has denied that they were doing anything but just a very brief kiss. The cab driver told police that the passengers were "making sex" in his cab.
Nobody was arrested, and the couple did find another cab to pick them up. The couple is now seeking "compensatory and other damages," according to the complaint.
