Latte Love: Supporters of Marriage Equality Head to Starbucks
Today is National Marriage Equality Day, and to celebrate, proponents of same-sex marriage are asking all of you (unless you hate equality) to head out to Starbucks to counter the recent Chick-Fil-A day of support organized by Mike Huckabee.
Starbucks was chosen as a point of rallying after they came out in support of marriage equality in Washington.
It's not clear how well the event is going so far -- an LA Times article reports that "Though its still early in the day, National Marriage Equality Day - originally known as National Starbucks Appreciation Day before organizers broadened the scope - seems to be getting a mostly mild start."
As of now, of the nearly 230,000 people invited on a Facebook page, over 35,000 have said they would attend.
Chick-Fil-A appreciation day, meanwhile, had over 670,000 respondents on Facebook.
