We will create an eye-catching protest of Pence to draw attention to his homophobia and misogyny with a die-in. If you want to participate in the die-in, Wear white clothes that you don't mind staining; we will provide fake blood. If you don't want to be easily recognized in photos, we encourage you to arrive in pale or white make-up.
Pence was known as Period Pence when he was the deeply unpopular Governor of Indiana. He appeared certain to be voted out in 2016 when Trump picked him to become his VP.
Pence said "the great vast majority of the psychological community says homosexuality at a very minimum is a choice by the individual, and at the maximum, is a learned behavior". He later went on to sign a controversial Religious Objections bill into law that would permit discrimination against LGBTQ people. Pence also enabled the worst HIV outbreak in Indiana history.
Pence says "I believe we’ll see Roe v. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history." Pence signed into law a measure that would force Indiana women to seek funerary services for a fetus — whether she’d had an abortion or a miscarriage, and no matter how far along the pregnancy was. The backlash to this legislation resulted in his Period Pence moniker. The law was stopped by Indiana courts one day before it went into effect. Pence also refuses to meet alone with any woman!
