Opponents of Chick-fil-A's support of traditional marriage held same-sex kiss-ins around the country Friday. At the Bay Area's only Chick-fil-A, located in Fairfield, there was only a small turnout for the protest.

After Chick-fil-A's president went public with his opposition to same-sex marriage, gay rights activists called for a demonstration outside Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country.

In Fairfield, there were two women and a little girl holding a sign and then a couple of guys who grabbed all the attention when they actually kissed on cue. It was staged and awkward, but the message was delivered.

"We just want everyone to just, like, be OK with it," Fairfield resident Michael Hockbart said.

On Wednesday, hundreds of supporters of Chick-fil-A turned out in support of traditional marriage. The restaurant had so much business they sold out of food five hours before closing, a first for the restaurant.

Friday, there were more supporters of Chick-fil-A's president showing up saying they came for political or religious reasons.
