Vice President-Elect Mike Pence is one of the most staunchly anti-gay politicians working in America right now. To protest his official ascension to the position of Vice President, a handful of local LGBTQ organizations banded together for a small but jovial demonstration right outside Pence's home in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
According to CNN, around 200 protestors showed up donning rainbow flags and playing jams by Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, and Rihanna — ready to demonstrate their unity and willingness to fight back against the man who will attempt to take away rights from sexual minorities in the next four years. The crowd was reportedly diverse and included men, women, and gender non-conforming people of all ages.
"We are here tonight to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country," organizer Firas Nasr said. "We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor."
Pence wasn't actually home at the time of the party (which is a shame, cause it sounds fun as hell). He was actually just accross town, hosting the Vice President-elect's Inaugural Dinner at the National Portrait Gallery.
A handful of local Trump supporters also made an appearance at the protest, but the LGBTQ demonstraters did not engage with them.
The protest was entirely peaceful.
