LGBTQ Activists Throw ‘Queer Dance Party’ Outside Pence’s DC Home
A “Queer Dance Party” was held outside Mike Pence’s home yesterday due to Pence’s political views, which queer activists do not like.
The Hill reports:
Hundreds of protestors and LGBTQ activists took to the streets outside of Mike Pence’s Washington, D.C., home on Wednesday night to protest the vice president-elect with a dance party.
WERK for Peace and DisruptJ20 planned the “Queer Dance Party at Mike Pence’s House” to speak out against what they consider are Pence’s anti-LGBT views.
They convened at Friendship Heights Metro station and danced toward the Pence family’s rental home, less than two days before he is sworn in as vice president.
“We are here tonight to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country,” said one organizer, Firas Nasr, as he rallied the dancers, according to CNN.
“We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor,” he said.
The protestors held signs and listened to Whitney Houston and Rihanna.
“A Religious Registry Led to the Third Reich. So Please Reason With Your Queen Oh Big Daddy Mike,” read one sign.
The dancers crowded the streets wearing costumes and hats, tutus, rainbow flags and glowsticks. Reporters on the scene noted that police were blockading the path to Pence’s home.
