MONTREAL - A popular Montreal bar is being accused of homophobia after a bouncer allegedly kicked out two male students for kissing.

A student association at the Universite de Montreal is demanding an apology from Bar Saint-Sulpice, a busy spot in the city's Latin Quarter.

Vincent Fournier Gosselin, an executive with the student group, says a bouncer at the bar forced the two students to leave a medical school orientation event last Friday night.

Gosselin called the actions "homophobic and totally unacceptable."

Gregory Bas, a manager at Saint-Sulpice, says the administration will speak to everyone involved to find out what happened before commenting further.

Protesters are planning a "kiss-in" in front of the bar next Friday.
