ATLANTA (AP) -- Gay rights activists and other supporters of marriage equality plan a national "Kiss In" at Chick-fil-A restaurants today to protest the fast-food chain owners' opposition to same-sex unions.
Participants are encouraged to go to the fast-food chains and kiss a fellow demonstrator of the same sex. One organizer, Carly McGehee of Dallas, says she hopes the event helps gay youths who feel isolated and are victims of bullying.
The gatherings come two days after hundreds of thousands of customers, many of them conservative Christians, recognized "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" at more than 1,600 locations.
The company says the turnout Wednesday made for "an unprecedented day," although didn't release exact sales numbers.
