The LA Times is reporting a counter-movement to Chick-fil-A wherein supporters of same-sex marriage and LGBT human and civil rights will show up to make a physical statement about where they want to spend their dollars.
Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights are trying again Tuesday with National Marriage Equality Day, initiated by Equally Wed, a lesbian and gay wedding magazine. So far, nearly 28,000 people have signed up to attend…
According to Equally Wed, executives at the coffee chain had privately pushed organizers to include other companies that support same-sex unions — such as Amazon.com and Nike.
“In an effort to heighten awareness for all companies and nonprofits contributing to the fight for marriage equality, we’ve decided to rename August 7 as National Marriage Equality Day,” according a description of the event on Facebook.
The page also lists dozens of other brands in the same camp, including Absolut Vodka, Google, Macy’s and Tiffany & Co.
Will you choose to support one of these businesses to show your support of LGBT people?
If not, did you support the Chick-fil-A boycott or even Appreciation Day?
In your estimation, do any of these tactics work?
