A group of LGBTQ-rights and animal-rights activists are planning to protest the opening of a new Chick-Fil-A in West Hartford, Connecticut tomorrow.

The fried chicken restaurant famously sparked a controversy a few years ago when its religious conservative CEO made comments opposing same-sex marriage. The company quieted down about their anti-gay beliefs after that, but some activists are not ready to let it go.

The Hartford Courant writes:

Frank O’Gorman of West Hartford said Tuesday that, as one of the organizers of the ‘LGBTQ Equality & Animal Rights Demo,’ he wants to raise awareness on opening day when people are looking to learn more about the restaurant. He said he has “no hostility to this specific franchise owner, employees or customers who goes there — our concern is with the corporation itself.”

The group plans to be a presence during mealtimes, too.
