"It made me very angry, very sad that this stuff still goes on in 2016," said Dr. Stacy Lane.
Lane provides care to members of the LGBT community at the center.
A “Hope Against Hate” rally was held, and attendees signed the sign that was defaced in hate.
"We've really turned it into a positive message when we've all come together today to show them that they're not going to win," Lane said.
Police have yet to name any persons on interest.
