Gay rights activist group 'WERK for Peace' and protest group 'DisruptJ20' hosted a dance party to take place outside of the US' Vice President-Elect's home.

The purpose of the event is to make it clear that the LGBTQ+ community will not be silenced and that they'll keep fighting for their rights, regardless of those who don't support them. The group was originally founded after the tragic events at Pulse nightclub in Orlando and since then, they've been planning peaceful dance gatherings as a means of healing and promoting love and freedom.

Hundreds of activists and allies declared their attendance to the group's most recent event and the story has been picked up by multiple media agencies as well, proving that WERK for Peace's creative endeavors have the ability to make a statement while leaving a positive message behind.
