UPDATE: Kroger Caves to Homosexual Pressure, Allows “Gay” Paper Again

Saying Nashville is “a diverse city,” The Kroger Co. said Monday it would carry Out & About, a free newspaper catering to the area’s gay community, at eight area supermarkets.

One month ago, DistribuTech, a company that brokers deals with publications wanting space on Kroger’s in-store racks, removed the paper from 34 Kroger and three Harris Teeter supermarkets.

The move sparked an outcry from local and national gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender groups, who urged members to consider shopping elsewhere.

On Monday, the Cincinnati-based supermarket chain said the review process had been completed and that “it resulted in the return of the paper to some stores in the Nashville area.”

Christopher Sanders, president of the Tennessee Equality Project, said he was pleased with the decision.

“This compromise is a victory for good business, dialogue and cooperation,” he said.
