“Let’s meet in TEN’s parking lot at sunset (8:45pm) and stand in solidarity with our brothers & sisters in Orlando,” the event invite reads. “Please bring any candles that you have, even if they are in little glass jars. Whatever you have. We will light up the night. What makes us different makes us beautiful. We need to stand strong in the face of terror and show them they can’t take away our pride. Bring your rainbow flags too!”
The Atlanta Police Department is aware of the event and will be making a statement about increased patrols in the area shortly.
