PHOTOS: Youth Empowered To Act Protests Chick-Fil-A Grand Opening

In the early morning hours yesterday, a group of young LGBT advocates stood bleary-eyed but steadfast outside the new Chick-fil-A in Laguna Hills, California, letting people know there were better options (even if those chicken sandwiches are as good as people tell us they are). The teens, members of Youth Empowered To Act (YETA) distributed fliers informing potential customers of Chick-fil-a’s links to anti-gay organizations and the company’s stance against marriage equality.

“Family, friends and teachers support who I am and they don’t want to support a company that donates millions to groups working to make life harder for me as well as young adults like me,” said YETA member Justin Mccoy, 20.
