can you hold hands in the San Fran Jewish Museum?

[Jane] Levikow was in the gallery with her partner when she noticed a young lesbian couple in heated conversation with a security guard.

“They were holding hands,” Levikow said, “and he told them they couldn’t hold hands in the museum.”

The irony? The featured exhibit was the “evolving public personae, lifestyle, and relationships,” of Gertrude Stein. The museum officials have reprimanded the guard.
