Pence visited Ohio’s capital on Friday as part of a series of events organized by America First Policies to promote Republican tax reforms. His stay coincided with the start of Pride celebrations in the city.

As the vice president touted tax cuts, protesters interrupted with loud calls challenging his policies on immigration, specifically family separation at the border, and LGBTQ rights.

Two demonstrators held banners saying “Love is love” and “We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it.” Some members of the audience countered with chants of ‘USA, USA’ and cheered as security removed the demonstrators from the room.

Pence quipped, “You got to love Ohio,” as the protesters were escorted from the building.

Meanwhile, across from the Renaissance Hotel where Pence was speaking, drag queens, music, and rainbows filled the streets in a colorful dance party.

The ‘Big LGBTQ Dance Party’ was organized to challenge Pence, who has supported anti-gay policies, is against same-sex marriage, and has been accused of supporting gay conversion therapy after backing using federal funding to “provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.”
