Queer Dance Freakout at the Governor’s Mansion

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

There’s going to be a dance party at the Governor’s Mansion. A group protesting anti-LGBT legislation is planning to take over Gov. Greg Abbott’s space with as many swaying bodies as possible. Meet up on Thursday, Feb. 23, between 10th and 11th streets, at 6 p.m., and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. “We say NO to anti-transgender bathroom bills. We say NO to marriage equality limitations. We say NO to old men saying what we can and cannot do,” the group said on Facebook. “We say YES to the freedoms of the body. We say YES to sweating in the streets while we ride the beat.”
