On Wednesday night, hundreds of LGBTQ activists converged on the D.C. home of Vice president-elect Mike Pence to throw a festive, glittery dance party.
“Daddy Pence, come dance!” celebrants shouted as songs by Beyoncé, Michael Jackson and others boomed from portable speakers.
Activist Alejandro Alvarez broadcast the event live on Periscope.

As Indiana’s Republican governor, Pence oversaw the implementation “Religious freedom” laws which allow individuals to withhold goods and services from people whom their faith deems unworthy.
Pence has clung his support of the draconian laws, declaring them part and parcel with each American’s First Amendment right to freedom of expression. However, like North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R), Pence has seen his dogmatism sink his state’s economy.
The Indy Star said of Pence’s stubborn refusal to roll back the religious freedom laws, “When you deal your state a crushing economic blow, when you seem incapable of understanding the role you have played in creating this mess — well, that makes clear that you are not in the right job.”
