Watch: 'Come Dance, Daddy Pence,' LGBTQ Activists Twerk It to 'Yoncé' in Epic Protest Party Outside the VP-Elect's DC Home

And people on Twitter are screaming, "yaaaaaaaas."

Published January 19, 2017

On Wednesday night, LGBT activists joined together in a massive dance party held outside of the Washington, D.C., home of incoming Vice President Mike Pence

The dancing occurred during a march through D.C. that ended up outside the temporary D.C. home of Pence. Throughout the week, demonstrators have been gathering in the capital this week to protest Donald Trump, his administration and many of his policy choices. 

Mike Pence has a record of opposing LGBT rights in his home state of Indiana. 

  1. The dance protest was organized by 'Werk for Peace'

    Werk for Peace describes itself as a “grassroots movement using dance to promote peace.”

  2. As the 'queer dance party' turned up, protesters chanted, 'Come dance, Daddy Pence!'

    Throughout the evening, the nearly 200 attendees of the party danced to hits from Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Beyoncé.

  3. In 2015, Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which many believed would condone discrimination against LGBT people. Additionally, Pence has spoken out in favor of legislation meant to ban same-sex marriage. He has shown support for “conversion therapy,” which is a practice meant to change people’s sexual orientation.

  4. Last year, the cast of 'Hamilton' called out Mike Pence after one of their performances

    “We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us,” actor Brandon Victor Dixon said. “This is one American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”

  5. As footage of the 'queer dance party' was posted online, people on Twitter celebrated the effort
