Wednesday night, hundreds of protesters danced the evening away at Mike Pence's house in protest for his past anti-LGBT actions as governor of Indiana. According to WJLA-TV, the protestors came to send a message about gay rights.
The event was advertised on Facebook as the "Queer Dance Party at Mike Pence's House". It was a jovial celebration with music and dancing. Not your typical protest.

DC Police and Secret Service kept the large group in Chevy Chase from getting too close to the VP-Elect's home. Their dance party was kept one-tenth of a mile away.
