The group gathered in Dupont Circle and marched north along Massachusetts Avenue to the Kalorama neighborhood, the recent new home of Ivanka Trump.

Firas Nassr, one of the organizers for Saturday’s dance protest, said that Ivanka Trump, has shown support in the past for the LGBTQ community and had something to say to her.

“We want to send a message that if you are going to be a BFF of the LGBTQ community, then you have to come out and dance with us,” he said.
