LGBT students at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia have been campaigning against the Chick-fil-A franchise on campus because of the company’s anti-gay policies and giving. The campus community has had a thoughtful conversation about what can legally be done in the immediate, but the students continue to advocate for the chain to leave campus.

But the students in Emory’s LGBT alumni group, GALA, and LGBT student group, Emory Pride, are unfazed by the revelation.
