San Jose to protest Chick-Fil-A’s anti-LGBT views by flying LGBTQ flags

Chick-Fil-A is scheduled to open a new restaurant in the catering air at San Jose International Airport, California next month.

Following a new anti-LGBT scandal by the fast-food chain, City Council unanimously decided to fly rainbow and transgender flags nearby in protest.

In March 2018, City Council allowed Chick-Fil-A to install a restaurant at an airport location.

It appears that they were not aware of the company’s anti-LGBT policies and donations for organizations fighting against our community.

Mayor Sam Liccardo has since apologized. He said in an interview with Mercury News that he “simply didn‘t think enough.”

Recently, the gay former county supervisor Ken Yeager suggested flying LGBT flag “as a counter-signal to the discrimination supported by [the company].”

Councilman Raul Peralez added with humor that this new location will be “the gayest Chick-Fil-A in the country!

The cities of San Antonio and Buffalo have refused to allow new Chick-fil-A restaurants.
