A social media post of the event reads, the New York Daily News reported: ‘We’re sure many of you have heard about our event coming up on June 11th … Although we’ve had overwhelming support for it, there are a few who are filled with hate and/or misunderstanding. People full of hate and negativity want your attention, don’t give it to them. Stay happy!”
