Posted on 07/04/2015 7:24:37 AM PDT by EBH
In what could be a first for a global fast food outlet, Burger King is making a bold proclamation in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community with the launch of a specially packaged burger.
The "Be Your Way" project was created at a Burger King franchise in San Francisco, where a limited edition "Proud Whopper" sandwich was added to the menu to coincide with the city's annual pride festivities. According to press materials, guests who ordered the "Proud Whopper" found that the sandwich was the same as a classic Whooper, but came wrapped in a rainbow-colored wrapper with the inscription, "We are all the same inside."
Take a look at the "Proud Whopper" below, then scroll down to keep reading:
The burger's release was documented in a short "Be Your Way" film, which was released on Burger King's YouTube page and can be viewed at top.
We are always looking to engage our guests on a local level and be part of regionally relevant events, said Kelly Gomez, Director of West Coast Field Marketing, Burger King West Division, in an email statement. Given that a Burger King franchise was perfectly situated along the San Francisco Pride Parade route, she added, "It was a natural fit to be involved and celebrate by giving something back to the community.

Never been a fan of Burger King.
I’ll stick with Five Guys for big sloppy burgers. And Chick-Fil A to piss off the moronic Yuppie Hipster scum.
They saw money in it and we “got” it.
From last year and I believe it was confined to San Francisco. Not surprising. But “Whopper”? Sounds like wishful thinking to me.
I wish we had a Chick Fil A here.
Why should my tax money be spent to help cure pedophiles of a disease they bring upon themselves.
They should check with J.C. Penny's to see how well it works.
They might be able to buy the unused portion of the Ellen Degenerate contract.
Had lunch at Chic Fil A yesterday.
Oh it’s happening
Sickening to see the reaction of middle aged women withi children, changing their facebook avatars to rainbows and taunting conservatives about being on the “ wrong side of history’
I kid you not. America has lost an entire generation to thinking its historic to celebrate sodomy and they are never coming back
I guess my joking name for them of “burger kinky” is now their truthful name.
All they have to do is look at all previous efforts to get any liberal talk radio programs popular on a national scale. They don’t even do too well in local leftist markets. They have a record unspoiled by success.
Companies need just to consider this;
How do you make a small fortune with liberal talk radio?
Start with a large one.
But their hash brown potatoe rounds in the morning are great to have for the morning commuting drive.
Block anyone that has a rainbow all over their profile pic.
I have never eaten at a Burger King and now I’m damn sure I never will. I’ll do every thing I can to avoid supporting perverts and those that back them.
Restigmatize: "Gay" equals NAMBLA!
I thought that the inside of the burger was up to me. How are they all the same?
That’s not enough Burger King. They also should get a free bumper sticker which reads “ I’M PROUD OF MY BIG WHOPPER and a butt plug flag to wave.
New name.....burger queen
