Bit off topic but Mrs Biggles and I were in a Chick-Fil-A in NYC 4 months ago and there were 2 young guys in there waiting for their order, holding hands and they had a very quick kiss.

Funnily enough, no one gave them a second glance and the sky didn't fall

But yeah, that flyer looks like the bottom part has been photoshopped for sure.

You can't really verify something unless it's true. That sign is shown completely without any context.

If nothing else, I don't think Connecticut is the type of place where a restaurant would be removing gay, trans gendered and cross dressing people without someone saying something about it.

No idea about the sign, but a Chick Fil A (which I am going to continue to mentally pronounce as "Chick Filler" even though I know it's not that) did open in North Haven on September 8th 2016:

There's plenty of context - enough to actually get contact details for the location concerned!

Yeah, something like that in North Haven would have made big news in the local media. Here's the only legit article I could find about the new store:

100 people camp out for nearly 24 hours at new North Haven Chick-fil-A

and, just by way of counterpoint to the O.P.'s claims (also nearby in Conncecticut): LGBT advocate helps Chick-Fil-A get approval to set up restaurant in West Hartford

We're getting a Chick-Fil-A and the man who owns the company building it is openly gay. So they didn't have a problem hiring him.
