So. Chick-fil-A hates gay people, but people still love Chick-fil-A. Those darn cute illiterate cows! We can't resist 'em! So, in order to combat the chain and simultaneously help out those poor souls who just gotta eat mor chicken, a number of restaurants around the country are offering alternatives.

You may have heard that West Hollywood gay bar The Abbey has created a Chick-For-Gay sandwich. They're not the only ones though.

Starting tomorrow, Tart Restaurant on Fairfax Ave in L.A. will start serving a Cluck OFF CF special, which includes a punch bowl and 10 "don't get mad, get GLAAD" chicken sliders. The special serves up to 5 people and costs $50. $5 will go to GLADD.

In New York, a restaurant in Midtown called Schnipper's is donating $1 from the sale of any chicken filet sandwich to Marriage Equality USA, the pro-gay marriage organization.

In Atlanta, a cafe called Urban Cannibals is serving a special Two Chicks-Fil A sandwich at brunch, as well as a bunch of other "two chicks" specials.

Or, you could simply make your own. Serious Eats says they've cracked the code, and show us how to make a Chick-fil-A sandwich at home. There are plenty of other pro-gay, anti Chick-fil-A sandwich recipes around the web as well.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
