A day left before the Obama Administration comes to an end, Americans are concerned, scared and extremely worried that the progress made will be undone by president-elect Donald Trump and vice president-elect Mike Pence. The latter has a strong history of anti-gay policy making + a belief in gay conversion therapy. To make a strong + united showing against this duo of devastation, LGBTQ activists flooded outside Pence’s house last night to throw a dance party in opposition to their plans at deconstructing LGBTQ rights.

Hundreds of activists, led by WERK For Peace and their leader Firas Nasr, created a queer party in Chevy Chase, Maryland and danced to Whitney Houston and Rihanna hits while embracing the spirit of unity, 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 reported. “We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor.”

Watch some highlights below:

Pence has a well-documented history of opposition to LGBTQ rights, from campaigning against gay marriage to opposing the repeal of the U.S. military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. After throwing an ultimate dance party on Pence’s block, WERK For Peace are taking their talents to Washington, D.C. to oppose Donald Trump’s ascension to our highest office. Huge numbers are expected to take part in the Women’s March on Washington and the Peace Ball. WERK For Peace, which was founded in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting last year, are saying that they will “use all forms of dance to promote peace” as their agenda.

Dance on friends, we need all the joy we can get.
