Gay rights activists took a national stand again Chick-fil-A today by celebrating “Kiss Day” at the fast food restaurant.

Some Chick-fil-A’s across the country did have protestors, but we couldn’t find any tonight in Lexington.

A Lexington Chick-fil-A manager said the restaurant was running like normal.

A gay rights website stated that a national movement would take place at 8 p.m. When same sex couples would sit in a Chick-fil-A and kiss, protesting CEO Dan Cathy’s opinion that marriage should be between a man and woman.

But when 8 o’clock came around, ABC 36 didn’t see a single protestor at the Chick-fil-A in Hamburg or on Nicholasville Road.

Nationally, some Chick-fil-A’s did have protestors. In Atlanta, people took to the streets to have their message heard.

Today’s protest counters Wednesday’s “National Appreciation Day,” where customers flooded Chick-fil-A’s in Lexington and around the country – showing support for the company.

Chick-fil-A says it set record sales Wednesday. But have not yet released numbers.
