"It was disheartening to see that we had so many people in our community and across the nation coming out against what we felt like was an attack on our rights," said Fultz.

"A lot of people talked about free speech on Wednesday's demonstration and we are looking at it as more of an attack on our rights," said Fultz.
"I know there will be some people throughout the community that might partake in that--we think that it's a better idea to go out and do something positive with our time and impact people that are helping the gay community instead of people that are hurting it," said Fultz.
Those who supported chick-Fil-A on Wednesday say they have no problem with the kiss-ins.
" if same sex couples are kissing in public my reaction is the same with opposite sex couples kissing in public...it's kind of like ok move on i don't have a problem one way or another," said Joseph Jetmore.
