LGBT protesters throw dance party outside Mike Pence's house

LGBT protesters have held a 'Queer Dance Party' outside US vice president-elect Mike Pence's house.

Mr Pence will be sworn in as vice president on Friday (local time) and is a notoriously anti-LGBT politician, including signing a law allowing business to discriminate against LGBT individuals and advocating for conversion therapy.

"We plan on leaving behind [biodegradable] glitter and rainbow paraphernalia that he can NEVER forget," organisers WERK for Peace wrote on Facebook.

"#WeAreQueer #WeAreHere #WeWillDance."

Around 600 to 800 people turned up to the vibrant protest, according to local media reports.

The protest was to be held right outside of Mr Pence's house in Maryland on his final night there, but attendees had to shift their location to just down the street after security locked down the address for security purposes.

But after rain comes a rainbow, and the protesters enthusiastically sang and danced to a number of songs including Queen's 'We Will Rock You' and Whitney Houston's 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'.

Other parodied one of US president-elect Donald Trump's key campaign statements; instead of chanting "make America great again", they called for people to "make America gay again".

WERK for Peace was established after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, where 49 people were killed.

Organiser and founder Firas Nasr says paying tribute to the victims of that attack was another motivator for choosing to throw a dance party.

"Dance has historically been a really powerful symbol for the LGBT community," he said.

"Dance is a form of healing. It allows us to tap into our bodies and use our bodies, use movement to promote a movement - for peace, love, and self-acceptance.

"We are out here occupying the street to assert our bodies and use our bodies to say we are here and we will dance."

While it was a protest, it was a bright one filled with positive people, and attendee Alex Frazier said she hoped people would look at photos from the night and see a "bunch of loving people".

"A bunch of happy people... a bunch of people who are comfortable standing up for what is right a reasonable. This is who we are."
