Local Chick-fil-A protests planned

Yesterday might have been Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, but local businesses and activists will host their own demonstrations tomorrow, in what's being called National Same-Sex Kiss Day.

At least four groups are planning local protests.

Carma Productions, the force behind the Gayborhood App and The Gay Community Yellow Pages, will be outside the Chick-fil-A in Decatur from noon to 2 p.m.

Carma will be handing out coupons to gay-owned and gay-friendly local businesses and will have other giveaways for participants.

Chick-fil-A on Friday: Have your gay protest and eat it too?

Fresh from the heels of the popular Hardee's/Carl's Jr. promotion earlier this month promoting the new Spiderman flick by giving away free food to customers who came into locations dressed as the comic hero, Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A will offer visitors who dress up as a cow free food on Friday, July 13.

Chick-filet-A is calling the giveaway "Cow Appreciation Day," and will give a free meal to those who come into their locations dressed as a cow from “head to hoof.” Customers who come in wearing a cow-accessory, like a hat or tail, will be given a free sandwich.

Gay rights activists are hoping to use the promotion to draw attention to Chick-fil-A's history of political donations to anti-gay organizations and causes.
