    Queer Dance Freakout

    We're here, we're queer, and we're not going anywhere. For the anniversary of last year's queer dance freakout protesting bathroom bills and anti-LGBTQ legislation, the party planners are taking the fight to the steps of the Capitol to encourage a blue wave in state politics.
