Chick-fil-A has reached out to the San Antonio leadership after the Texas city’s council narrowly voted to ban the popular chicken sandwich chain from the local airport over what they called “anti-LGBT behavior.”

The Christian Post was provided a statement by Chick-fil-A via email on Tuesday, in which the company explained that it welcomed “the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council.”

“We hope they will experience for themselves that Chick-fil-A embraces all people, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity,” stated Chick-fil-A.

“We are proud of the positive impact we are making in communities across America, and specifically in San Antonio, and have been transparent about our giving on our web site.”

Last week, the San Antonio City Council voted 6-4 to remove Chick-fil-A from a concession agreement with San Antonio International Airport.

At issue was Chick-fil-A’s connections to socially conservative nonprofits and its owner’s stated opposition to same-sex marriage.
