The Abbey Food & Bar, known as the best Gay Bar in the World, having won the title two year’s in a row from MTV’s Logo, announced today they would be adding The Chick-for-Gay Sandwich to their menu with 100% of net proceeds from the sale of the sandwich going to support the American Foundation for Equal Rights and their federal court challenge in support of marriage equality.
“With the upcoming election, even our lunch choices are a political statement. If corporations have the right to spend unlimited amounts of money on an agenda of hate, we as an LGBT business community have to spend money supporting Marriage Equality,” said David Cooley, Founder of The Abbey. “If corporations have the same free speech rights as people, the people have to exercise their First Amendment right at the cash register by patronizing businesses that support our agenda and stop giving money to those that oppose equality.”
The Abbey’s Chick-for-Gay Sandwich is a seasoned breaded boneless chicken breast served on a toasted buttered bun with pickles. The sandwich will be available through the November elections. They Abbey will happily share the recipe with other pro-LGBT businesses that want to support marriage equality through the sale of the sandwich.
