WOODBURY -

Patchogue's first ever Alive After Five summer event will see an increased police presence.

The event, which will celebrate Pride Month and the LGBTQ community, will take place on June 27.

As News 12 has reported, an email was sent to event organizers back in April condemning the Pride theme calling it "a platform for homosexual perversion and filth."

Police are investigating and tell News 12 that extra officers will be on hand for the festival on Main Street.
