“The press briefing will take place at the height of Pride Month and just days after the 6-year remembrance of the 49 lives that were taken during the Pulse Club massacre,” the group wrote.

The group also said the conference will criticize the Parental Rights in Education Law, which sought to give parents more decisions over their children’s education and eliminated gender theory curriculum from grades K-3.
