D.C. Gay Activists Organizing ‘Queer Dance Party’ Outside of Mike Pence’s House


pence45A Washington D.C. gay rights movement is organizing a “queer dance party” outside of the home of vice president-elect Mike Pence.

The event is a collaboration between WERK for Peace, “a grassroots movement using dance to promote peace” and DisruptJ20, a left-wing group that vows there will be “no peaceful transition” on inauguration week. 300 people are marked down as “going” on the event’s Facebook page, while over a thousand are interested in the event.

“The homo/transphobic Mike Pence has graciously invited us to shake our booties and bodies in front of/around his house in Chevy Chase,” the description on the Facebook event reads. “We plan on leaving behind [biodegradable] glitter and rainbow paraphinalia that he can NEVER forget.”

“That’s right, get ready to WERK it and tell Daddy Pence: homo/transphobia is not tolerated in our country…” the description continues. “Bring your flyest rainbow gear and your booty/body shaking skills!”

Russian state-controlled outlet RT is particularly miffed by the event, declaring that “an event billed as a ‘gay dance parade’ is being planned in an attempt to sabotage Donald Trump’s inauguration.”
