On Wednesday night, after three days of President Trump following through on many of his campaign promises that will have drastic implications for people of color, Muslims, and immigrants, a group of LGBTQ protesters gathered in Philadelphia to protest the administration.

The protest, dubbed the #queerrager, took place outside the Loews Hotel in downtown Philadelphia, where the GOP is holding a retreat Thursday. Hundreds of people protested with chants and dancing, WPVI-TV reported.

Trump has chosen several cabinet nominees with anti-LGBTQ records, and shortly after the inauguration, all mentions of LGBTQ rights were removed from the Whitehouse.gov website.

"We're dancing through the anger," one demonstrator wrote on Twitter:

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney tweeted that the protesters were welcome in his town:

Local media outlets report that more protests are expected Thursday with the retreat and Trump's visit to the city.
