At a LGBTQ dance protest, Beyoncé is obviously at the top of the playlist. Yes, a dance protest. Protesters marched to incoming Vice President Mike Pence's house in D.C. last night to make a statement.
Pence has openly and deliberately opposed LGBTQ rights throughout his career. After the inauguration, Pence will move into his official Vice Presidential housing at the Naval Observatory, but these folks were excited to give Pence a proper send-off, to say the least.

According to Refinery29, Beyoncé was the most-played artist of the night. Among the other artists the group danced to were Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Whitney Houston, Pharrell and DJ Snake.
This may be the most inspiring kind of protest. Not only does dancing your heart out make oppressors like Pence squirm, but it also unites us, avoids violence, celebrates our shared experiences and gives us all the endorphins. Dancing alone can't change our political environment, but we the people can. When in doubt, just keep moving.
