The Vice President-elect has a history of anti-gay policy making.

Hundreds of activists got turnt outside Mike Pence’s house last night in protest at the incoming Vice President’s history of opposition to LGBTQ rights.

Led by activist group WERK For Peace and their leader Firas Nasr – seen dancing in front of the crowd in the video below – the queer party marched to Pence’s home in Chevy Chase, Maryland and danced to Rihanna and Whitney Houston hits while waving rainbow flags and LED hula hoops.

“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 protesters, as CNN reports. “We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor.”

Pence has a history of opposition to LGBTQ rights, from campaigning against gay marriage to opposing the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

WERK For Peace is an activist group founded in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting last year with the goal of “using all forms of dance to promote peace”.

Protestors are expected to arrive in Washington D.C. in huge numbers this weekend as Donald Trump takes office. The Women’s March on Washington will take place on Saturday, the day after his inauguration, with sister marches planned across the world. Beyoncé, St. Vincent and Grimes are among the high-profile musicians publicly supporting the march.
