What gay activists can learn from Shane Windmeyer
Note from GLAADRoss Murray, Director of News and Faith Initiatives at GLAAD
I’m sure a lot of LGBT people don’t trust Dan Cathy, nor are they going to want to spend their hard-earned dollars at Chick-fil-A. They are completely justified in wanting to patronize businesses that affirm the full humanity and equality of LGBT people, covertly and overtly.
Consumers still need to make the decision for themselves about how they want to spend their money. Some may decide that their witness within individual Chick-fil-A restaurants may be the thing that helps the company understand that LGBT people are not the threat that they once imagined. Others may decide that there are other places to get a chicken sandwich.
