Kentucky Equality Federation unconditionally supports the Louisville Fairness Campaign in the following action alert:
Protest Against Anti-gay Discrimination at McDonald’s
WHEN: Friday, October 10, at Noon
WHERE: McDonald’s, 420 E Market St., Louisville
WHY: While 5 visitors waited for their food to be prepared, an employee behind the counter referred to them as "faggots" to another employee. The visitors asked to speak with a manager. As they waited for the supervisor on duty to appear, the employee who had called them "faggots" started arguing with them, repeatedly calling them "faggots" in front of other customers and calling one of them a "cocksucker" and "bitch."
The supervisor on duty refused to refund the group's purchase, claiming that only the restaurant's general manager could authorize a refund. All attempts to solve the issue with McDonald’s managers have been ignored.
