Lancaster Chick-fil-A To Host Draq Queen Story Hour

HOTLANTA, GA – In another step to distance itself from past anti-LGBTQ practices Chick-fil-A will be hosting Drag Queen Story Hours at its Lancaster, Harrisburg, and Mechanicsburg stores.

“We recently discontinued our support for anti-LGBTQ charities and decided that we needed to take additional steps to embrace other lifestyles and introduce them to our regular customers.” said spokesman John D. Baptist.

The fast food chain announced November that beginning in 2020 it will only donate to a certain group of charities. That list no longer includes the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Both organizations have taken controversial stands on homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

In 2018, the Chick-fil-A foundation donated $1.65 million to the FCA and $115,000 to The Salvation Army.

Going forward, Chick-fil-A said it will work exclusively with organizations that focus on education, homelessness and hunger. Those are Junior Achievement USA, Covenant House International and donating $25,000 local food banks.

“No organization will be excluded from future consideration — faith-based or non-faith-based,” said Tim Tassopoulos, president and chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, in a statement.

The Drag Queen Story Hours will take place Saturdays in January at the Lancaster, Mechanicsburg, and Harrisburg locations from 12pm to 1pm.
