WASHINGTON — With glow sticks, hula hoops and rainbow flags, protesters took a dance party to the streets near the vice president-elect's temporary home to oppose his positions on LGBT issues.

News outlets report that more than 100 people accompanied by a truck blasting music danced Wednesday night through the usually quiet Chevy Chase area of northwest Washington, where Mike Pence has been renting a home.

Disrupt J20, a collection of activist groups, and WERK For Peace, which formed after the Orlando nightclub shooting, organized what they called a "Queer Dance Party." Activists have criticized Pence for signing a law as Indiana governor that they say could sanction discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender customers. The legislature later reversed course.

The group found Pence's street blocked. It wasn't clear if he was home.

And you wonder yet again why I am going to call you a troll. Making fun of others is not funny, nor entertaining. The song is DANCING IN THE STREET by Martha and the Vandella's. [ban]

Luv ya, CD, but "dancing" is the lyric all through the song, "Dancing in the Streets" first sung by Martha and the Vandellas. I think you are thinking about "Keep on Dancing" whereas "a-prancing" is in the chorus.
