Members of the Michiana area LGBT community say they're not too chicken to stand up against what they call hate.

Just two days after hundreds came out to show their support of the fast food franchise, some Michiana residents are protesting Chck-fil-A for its CEO's stance on gay marriage.

On Friday night, members of the local LGBT community stood outside the Mishawaka location, holding signs asking people to honk for love.

They're asking people not to eat at Chik-fil-A because some of the money they make helps promote hate.

“They've donated five million dollars to known LGBT groups such as exodus international that have anti-LGBT policies in place and people who support Chick-fil-A their money is going to hate organizations and that affects people like me,” said Marika kuspa, local activist.

A police officer was on hand in case things got out of hand.

But protestors said they instead got several honks of support, and a lot of odd looks.
