Democracy Now: Protesters Hold National “Kiss-In” for LGBT Rights at Chik-fil-A Locations


Protesters continue to target the fast food chain Chik-fil-A after its founder openly declared his opposition to equal rights for LGBT people. In recent weeks, Chik-fil-A President Dan Cathy has acknowledged funding anti-LGBT groups and has denounced same-sex marriage. On Friday, activists and LGBT rights supporters across the nation held a national “kiss-in” outside of Chick-Fil-A locations.

Protester: “He’s promoting hatred. He’s promoting that people still have to be in the closet and not live the life that they were born to live. He promotes suicide, promotes bullying, promotes all of the bad stuff. I’m okay with someone exercising their First Amendment right, but not if it’s hatred against someone else.”
