Firas Nasr, the werktivist who led the Queer Dance Party in front of Mike Pence’s house!
For some of us, today is the day when we take our abuelita’s black lace veil, cut a hole in the mouth area to put our bong through and toke, toke, toke away while medicating the feeling of doom and gloom by watching The Golden Girls marathon on Logo. But before you do that, get a massive injection of glittery hotness provided by the WERK For Peace movement.
A group of queer activists gave birth to WERK For Peace in response to the massacre at Pulse in Orlando, FL. Since then, the group has been swaying their asses and dropping it low in the name of peace. And on Wednesday night, they took over the streets near Mike Pence’s rental house in DC and delivered what is probably his nightmare but my dream: a big ole’ hot gay dance party! They chose Mike Pence’s house, because DUH. Firas Nasr, who started WERK For Peace, told the Washington Post that they wanted to send a twerk-filled message to Mike Pence to let him know that the gay community will always be united (even as he sends us to gay conversation camps, and again, bitches, I’ve already called the bottom bunk under Anderson Cooper).
“Dance is so integral to the queer community as a form of self-expression and a form of asserting our power and our beauty and our love for one another, The idea is to leave a mark that Mike Pence will never forget. We want to send a strong message to Pence that we’re a united queer community. We’ve always stood united. There’s always space to dance.”
As they all busted out boiling moves to Madonna and Beyonce songs, they shouted, “Daddy Pence, come dance!” And without further ado, here’s a pucker-inducing clip of Fiery Firas dropping ten hundred tons of hotness while dressed like the glamorous lot lizard version of Mork.
And of course I’m not an anti-gay gay, but if I say I am, will Fiery Firas and his crew of werktivists throw a dance party in front of my house too?
