From left to right, Ashley Edwards, an openly gay student at Bowling Green Technical College, and Claudia Haens, a straight retired teacher from Henry F. Moss Middle School in Bowling Green, stand in front of Chick-Fil-A on Campbell Lane in support of gay marriage on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday. The inside of the restaurant was packed with supporters who came for a meal.

“I’m for gay marriage,” Edwards said.

Haens said that Chick-Fil-A has been “really nice,” to her being out front.

Both Edwards and Haens said that they won’t be eating at the franchise anymore.
