San Jose votes to surround Airport Chick-Fil-A with Rainbow Flags

San Jose has decided on a colorful way to protest the opening of Chick-Fil-A at the San Jose airport.

The San Jose city council voted against the anti-gay restaurant at the San Jose International Airport with rainbow and transgender flags.

The idea came from Ken Yeager, a gay man who was a former county supervisor. He believes they can be used "as a counter-signal to the discrimination supported by Chick-fil-A." In 2017, the chains philanthropic arm made headlines after their tax return shows they donated nearly $2 million to anti-LGBTQ organizations.

Aside from the homophobic record, locals were worried that people arriving to the city would see Chick-fil-A an get the wrong message about San Jose.
