Black Lips Swap Spit and Chicken For Chick-fil-A “Kiss-In” Day

If you walked by your local Chick-fil-A today and saw various same-sex couple making out in front of the building, you’re not alone.

Today, around the country, gay rights supporters have been participating in “kiss day” at Chick-fil-As. The “protest” is an obvious response to President Dan Cathy’s now-infamous remarks in opposition of gay marriage. The “kiss in” takes place just two days after Chick-fil-A supporters took to stores for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Culture wars be damned, this is just funny. Cole Alexander and Jared Swilley of Atlanta-based garage rock band Black Lips just posted this photo to their band page on Facebook – without comment. As you can see, there’s little doubt as to which side of the debate they fall:

The only thing that’s a bit confusing about this image is that they still seem to have bought the chicken. Maybe they’re making a new statement altogether: Supporters of gay rights and Chick-fil-A.

Today’s “kiss in” has a bit of work to do to match the turnout of Chick-fil-A appreciation day. The scene on Wednesday was pretty hectic in many stores around the country, with some reporting chicken outages. By some accounts, the company broke sales records.
