Best. Protest. Ever
This Friday, January 20th, Donald Trump and Mike Pence will be inaugurated. This event has protestors gathering together. And in a protest on Wednesday night, things got a little interesting. A group of LGBT activists came together to dance for peace. They put on a “queer dance party” which marched the streets of Washington DC, and ended up outside of Mike Pence’s temporary residence. Check out the story.
Queer Dance Party
An awesome thing happened Wednesday night, January 18th. Protesters and activists came together in a seriously cool, and entertaining way. The LGBT community put on what they referred to as a “queer dance party” outside of Mike Pence’s house.
It began as a march through the streets of Washington DC, before the group ended up at their final destination: Mike Pence’s house. Pence is living at his temporary home in Washington DC until he is able to move into his official home as vice president.
Dance to promote peace
Protestors and activist have been gathering to make their statements. The “queer dance party” was put on by Werk for Peace. The group claims to use “dance to promote peace.”
Mike Pence signed Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 2015. This act allows for legal discrimination against people of the LGBT community. He has tried to get rid of same-sex marriage and supports conversion therapy. Safe to say, Mike Pence is not a fan of the gays.
An invite for the dance party made its rounds on Facebook. It said that Mike Pence “has graciously invited us to shake our booties and bodies in front of/around his house in Chevy Chase. We plan on leaving behind [biodegradable] glitter and rainbow paraphernalia that he can NEVER forget.”
They also described Mike Pence and homo/transphobic. People gathered from all over to attend the “queer dance party.” Check out video footage from the protest, up next.
