Atlanta, GA (CNN) – Chick-fil-A will no longer donate money to charities with anti-LGBTQ views.
The fast food chain announced Monday that starting next year it will only donate to organizations that focus on education, homelessness, and hunger.
Chick-fil-A’s donations and comments from its executives have caused controversy over the past several years.
CEO Dan Cathy has said the Atlanta-based fast food company supports quote “The biblical definition of the family unit.”
Gay rights groups have boycotted and opposed the chain over its stance on same-sex marriage.
In a statement, gay rights organization ‘GLAAD’ said customers and employees should quote “Greet today’s announcement with cautious optimism.”
