At DC Focused we've spent much of our time in recent weeks documenting emotionally-charged political protests. However last Saturday, Cupid's Undie Run was a reminder that life goes on, even in the Nation's Capital.
The call went out this week on social media... it was time for a Queer Dance Party at Mike Pence's House! The soon-to-be vice president's dire record on gay and transgender rights would be met with bootie shaking and biodegradable glitter.

The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit group whose mission is “to transport America’s Veterans to Washington, DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and their friends.” Last year alone, more than 20,000 veterans traveled to Washington to tour such sites as Arlington Cemetery, the World War II Memorial, and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
