While some cities and colleges have banned Chick-fil-A outright over the fast-food chain’s Christian values—which in their minds translate into “hateful” anti-LGBT policies and attitudes—San Jose, Calif., has chosen a different tack. With a new Chick-fil-A scheduled to open next month at San Jose International Airport, the City Council voted last week to protest the selling of chicken sandwiches and waffle fries to hungry travelers by placing rainbow (representing gay rights) and pink, blue, and white (transgender rights) flags nearby, according to NBC News. Ken Yeager, the first openly gay elected official in Santa Clara County, proposed the idea.
The City Council in San Antonio, Texas, voted to block Chick-fil-A from its airport earlier this month, while plans to open a location at Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York state were recently nixed, as well. —R.L.A.
