A special thanks to Louis Flores who organized this counter-protest last minute so we would have a voice and presence in the face of religious intolerance with protestors on the steps of City Hall as we stood inside City Hall Park.

Thanks to NYPD Det. Duffy, LGBT Liaison and the young NYPD officers that stood by us and respect our rights.  One bummer was the media tried to come over directly through to us but the NYPD City Hall NYPD prevented them so we were pleased that the media took the extra time to come the long way around to interview and take footage.

More uploads coming soon....very, very tired!
