On Saturday afternoon, Dec. 4, Artisphere hosted Holiday Hugs & Kisses “to demonstrate broad community and regional support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people.” The event was designed as a large public display of affection. Metro Weekly’s Justin Stewart talked to two of the organizers, Christopher Henley, artistic director of the Washington Shakespeare Company and Daniel Hays, president of the Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance.
