A march was organized in Ybor City, Wednesday night, protesting the results of the general election.

"We're not scared and by we I mean the LGBTQ community, women in America. I mean Muslims (and) I mean Mexicans," Victoria Fostini said.

Fostini set up the march on Facebook, naming it "Not My President Tampa Protest". She did not expect a big turnout.

"You know, I came out here even though I had a couple of death threats and someone called my job and threatened to get me fired," Fostini said.

"We are facing a lot of steps back (and) a lot of things are going to happen that are going to be different," one protestor said.

"We're not going to be quiet. We're here (and) our voices are loud. We will be heard," Fostini said.
