PRESS RELEASE: The 519 Annual Gala 2021
TORONTO, ONTARIO – (September 5, 2019) – The 519, Canada’s most prominent LGBTQ2S community centre, will join LiberationTO to protest US-based restaurant chain Chick-fil-A as they open their first Canadian franchise in Toronto on Friday, September 6. Chick-fil-A’s anti-LGBTQ2S agenda and politics is well-documented. This is an activation by Army of Lovers, an advocacy campaign of The 519, dedicated to protecting the rights of LGBTQ2S communities.
Activities at the protest will include local drag artists and a ‘queer miracle’.
Journalists are welcomed to attend any part of the schedule, where interviews will be available with The 519 spokespeople.
