Roughly 200 LGBTQ and climate change activists came together on Saturday night for a dance party protest outside of Ivanka Trump’s house in Washington D.C.
“Protesting at Ivanka Trump’s house was a way for the LGBTQ and Climate Justice communities to demand more than just words of support,” WERK for Peace organizer Firas Nasr told HuffPost. “While Ivanka Trump has painted herself as a ‘friend of the gays’ and ‘climate czar,’ she was radio silent in the face of blatant attacks on our climate and on the LGBTQ community last week. Thus, with songs like Hillary Duff’s ‘Come Clean,’ CupcakKe’s ‘LGBT,’ and Bell Biv DeVoe’s ‘Poison,’ we brought the resistance to her doorstep and cheered, ‘Ivanka Trump, Come Dance!’ We celebrated our earth and our bodies, and we hope that Ivanka will do the same by speaking out and acting in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ and Climate Justice communities.”
The protest began in Washington D.C.’s Dupont Circle neighborhood and continued to Ivanka Trump’s residence.
