Students at a university in Pittsburgh have said they are in “fear” of the arrival of a Chick-fil-A on campus, because the restaurant actively promotes opposition too gay rights. So student senators are protesting at the Duquesne University over the deal to open a branch on campus. Speaking at a student government association meeting on 26 March, student senator Niko Martini claimed the students did not want any deal with the restaurant. The resolution by Martini has been backed by the gay-straight alliance at the university, that is afraid for the safety of LGBT students. “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 fair] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” GSA president Rachel Coury added.
