OHIO: At The Mike Pence LGBTQ Dance Party [VIDEO]

NBC News reports:

LGBTQ rights supporters and people celebrating Pride welcomed Vice President Mike Pence to Columbus, Ohio, on Friday with a “Big LGBTQ Dance Party.” Crowds converged on a small stretch of Gay Street — you read that right — outside the hotel where Pence was speaking to a separate group about tax reform.

Videos posted to social media showed crowd members raising rainbow flags and dancing to loud music. They were celebrating the kickoff of Columbus’ Pride Festival, but organizers also wanted to send a message to the vice president.

Friday’s party was not the first time LGBTQ rights proponents targeted the VP with dancing. Back in January 2017, hours before his inauguration as vice president, about 200 protesters marched to Pence’s rental home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and held a dance party outside, chanting, “Daddy Pence, come dance.”
