A few hundred people had a party last night near Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s house in Washington, D.C.
The groups WERK for Peace and DisruptJ20 had a “Queer Dance Party” to protest against what they viewed as Mike Pence’s position on LGBT issues.
From Washington Examiner:
Groups WERK for Peace and DisruptJ20 created the event to say “homophobia and transphobia is wrong and should be resisted,” according to Firas Nasr, founder of the first group.

“Our use of dance is really about claiming space and asserting #WeAreHere and #WeWillDance,” Nasr said.
According to the Washington Examiner, the protesters even brought biodegradable glitter and rainbow paraphernalia, including glow sticks, suspenders and hats.

The tweet above asks if this video doesn’t make you want to become a political organizer, nothing will.
How about a no?
President Obama has chilled most people on that job choice.
The group was kept well back from Pence’s home by the Secret Service.
