The group lists itself as a "proud city agency and a registered charity," and is "committed to the health, happiness and full participation of the LGBTQ2S communities."

Chick-fil-A has been challenged to expand outside of the U.S. It opened a few stores in South Africa in the 1990's but closed them a few years later. It's first store in Canada also closed after a few years.  Toronto appears to be Chick-fil-A's only current location in Canada.
