Atlanta gay couple sings their Chick-fil-A blues

As one Atlanta gay couple kiss-started the protests against Chick-fil-A, a lesbian couple put their stand against the chicken chain to music. These aren’t some drag queens chowing down on Chick-fil-A.

Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers, a couple since they met in an Atlanta gay bar about a year ago, sang their disgust in “Dear Chick-fil-A,” a song that hit YouTube on Saturday and has already recorded more than 7,800 views.

“[It’s a] video we made to draw attention to homosexual inequality and Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s stance on it. We hope that someday everyone has the same equal rights to be married,” Kam and Chambers say about the protest ditty.

The couple hopes to professionally record the song this week, sell it on iTunes and donate half the proceeds to LGBT groups. Kam and Chambers discussed the song and their motivations to create it in an online interview.

“Dear Chick-fil-A” came a day after a handful of protests at Atlanta-area Chick-fil-A restaurants, including one in Decatur.

The protests haven’t been the only reaction by LGBT consumer and gay-friendly supporters. “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Kim Zolciak expressed her disgust, Emory chided the company as Kennesaw State students asked for it to be evicted from campus, East Atlanta’s Flatiron Restaurant fired back at the “Chik-Fil-A-Holes” and lesbian-owned Urban Cannibals offers Two Chicks-fil-A Sunday Brunches.

There’s also been the guy who offered a reason why gay men in Atlanta won’t boycott Chick-fil-A and Cobb County crank Jim Mize, who supports “queers getting hitched” in Piedmont Park and Chick-fil-A.
