A college diversity
weenie activist at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh (Annual cost of attendance: $48,796) thinks gay students will be traumatized by the presence of a Chik-fil-A in a campus food court.
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” Rachel Coury (President of the Duquesne Gay-Straight Alliance) explained, adding that at the very least her organization would like “someone” to “make a statement” on the issue.
“It would be a really big deal for Lambda [Gay-Straight Alliance] and the whole LGBTQ community on campus if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus,” she said.
