They can kiss their anonymity goodbye.
The couple photographed kissing on the ground in the midst of the chaos of Vancouver’s riot Wednesday night have been identified.
Media reports say the pair are 29-year-old Australian Scott Jones and his girlfriend Canadian Alex Thomas.
Thomas is reportedly a student at the University of Guelph in Ontario.
Jones’s father outted his son in a Facebook post.
“This is my Son,” Brett Jones wrote next to the now-famed photo of the pair, which was snapped by freelance photographer Rich Lam during the riot. “Hows (sic) that for making love not war!”
Scott Jones’ family told the Australian news website Ninemsn that her brother and Thomas had recently started dating.
“It is something he would do; that’s our boy,” mother Megan Jones told the site. “He has always lived in his own world. He’s special like that. He doesn’t always connect with what (is) going on around him.”
The family said Jones has been in Canada for six months, working as a bartender and performing a live standup show.
