The dancing was part of a march through DC that eventually arrived outside the home that Pence is staying in until he moves into the official vice-presidential residence — the United States Naval Observatory. Demonstrators have been gathering in DC this week to protest Donald Trump, his administration, and his likely policies.
Trump and Pence will be inaugurated Friday.
In 2015, Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which critics said would allow discrimination against LGBT people. He has also repeatedly backed legislation meant to ban same-sex marriage, and in 2000 expressed support for so-called “conversion therapy” meant to change people’s sexual orientation.
Criticism of Pence recently grabbed headlines when he attended the musical Hamilton, prompting the cast to speak directly to him from the stage.
“We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us,” actor Brandon Victor Dixon said. “This is one American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds, and orientations.”
Representatives for Pence did not immediately return a BuzzFeed News request for comment, or say if he was at the home when the dancing took place.
