Gay marriage supporters held “kiss-ins” at Chik-fil-A restaurants from coast-to-coast sending out a message to the company’s CEO Dan Cathy who recently spoke out against same sex unions.
Same Sex Kiss Day is in response to Cathy’s comments made last month in which he said he supported “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
This made t he roughly 1,600 Chik-fil-A restaurants battle grounds for the gay marriage debate.
The Chik-fil-A kiss-in idea came from Carly McGehee, a Dallas political activist. While it is impossible to know how many people puckered up for gay marriage outside a Chik-fil-A on Friday. Carly said more than 15,000 people said they planned to participate via an event page she posted on Facebook.
