Last night, an estimated 200 protesters turned out for a “Queer Dance Party” on the streets outside Pence’s temporary Washington D.C. home, shimmying the evening away to the tunes of Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, and the Queen Bey herself.
“We are here tonight to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country,” Nasr told CNN, addressing Pence’s stance on LGBTQ protections and support of gay conversion therapy.
The protesters peacefully danced 1.2 miles from their starting point at the Friendship Heights Metro to Pence’s home, the walk taking about an hour.
Though Pence himself was actually hosting the Vice President-elect’s Inaugural Dinner at the National Portrait Gallery downtown, protesters set up their party half a block from Pence’s rental property, chanting “Daddy Pence, come dance.”
Pence’s house party is the second protest organized by WERK For Peace. Nasr founded the organization as a response to the Pulse nightclub shooting, and orchestrated a flash mob in Orlando in September as a call to action for Congress to address gun violence.
