As we previously reported, anti-gay marriage comments made by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy have polarized fast-food lovers everywhere. On Wednesday, Chick-fil-A supporters converged in droves upon its restaurant locations all over the nation for “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”, resulting in “record setting” sales, according to ABC News. But today, those on the other side of the argument plan to have their say.
“National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A”, which takes place today in protest of Cathy’s comments, encourages same-sex couples to take a photo or video of themselves kissing at their local Chick-fil-A. It has yet to be seen how many will turn out for the kiss-in, but the Facebook event page, which has over 13,000 confirmed participants, states the following:
“In honor of their support for love, equality, and the real definition of family, we’re holding a NATIONAL Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick Fil A’s around the country. So grab a friend (or 20) and head out to your nearest Chick Fil A! And don’t forget to post photos/videos of it here! For all the world to see!
We would also like to clarify that this event was NOT created as a response to Mike Huckabee’s appreciation day, this event was created on July 19, several days before Mike Huckabee announced his plans for Wednesday August 1.”
