Duquesne University’s Student Government Association and Lambda, the school’s gay-straight alliance group, are working together to address students concerns about a potential Chick-fil-A location on campus, according the Duquesne Duke. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Lambda President Rachel Coury told the student newspaper.
Years back, Chick-fil-A garnered controversy when CEO Bob Cathy voiced opinions that some considered homophobic.
In 2015, Johns Hopkins University students voted against bringing a Chick-fil-A to campus for the same reason.
