Bronx residents turn out for event to promote unity
Bronx residents came out on Saturday to spread a message of unity on the steps of the Bronx County Courthouse.
Dozens of members of the LGBTQ and straight communities came together to denounce hatred and discrimination and promote a message of love and unity. They say that this message is needed more now than ever before.
"LGBTQS United as One" began hosting the event in 2010 after a man was attacked in the Bronx because he was thought to be gay. On Sunday, people who were victims of bullying and discrimination also spoke out.
The next step for "LGBTQS United as One" will be at the Jacob Javits Center as part of a business expo in May.
