And the era of the Protest Sandwich has finally arrived. In case you’re wondering where you’re going to get a Chick-fil-A sandwich when you’re supposed to boycott Chick-fil-A, Northern Liberties-based restaurant PYT has introduced a more tolerant alternative. We’ll let PYT owner Tommy Up explain via his PYT Facebook post:
Introducing…the CHICK-PHIL-GAY! PYT has always been a friend to the LGBTQ community. Many of our staff and regulars are gay, bisexual or queer, and we have a zero tolerance policy for homophobia, racism, sexism, and any other kind of hatred. Recently, the CEO of another restaurant was outspoken in his opinions on gay marriage. Exercising his First Amendment rights, he repeated the same idiotic nonsense about gay marriage that PYT has been standing firmly against for these last three years, and we don’t “appreciate” it. We now exercise our First Amendment rights by saying: Everyone should have equal rights, including the right to marry and start a family. All are welcome at PYT, except the haters. To celebrate this statement, we invite you to come try the newest addition to our menu, the Chick-Phil-Gay. It’s a boneless breast of chicken seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded, cooked in peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. Served with waffle fries, it’s oddly familiar, but with 100% less hatred. For every Chick-Phil-Gay we sell, we’ll donate $1 to the Mazzoni Center, an organization that provides counseling and health services for LGBTQ Philadelphians. Oh, and while you’re here, try one of our famous hand-spun adultshakes. They’re the gayest shakes in town.
