As the play ended, the actor who played Aaron Burr, Brandon Victor Dixon, acknowledged that Mr. Pence was in the audience, thanked him for attending and added, “We hope you will hear us out.”

“We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”

The audience broke out in enthusiastic applause and cheers.

Mr. Pence was leaving as Mr. Dixon began to read the statement from the stage. A show spokesman said that Mr. Pence stood in the hallway outside the entrance to the auditorium and heard the full remarks. – READ MORE

    Again this is about homosexuality. Diverse IS code for homosexuality.
    Nobody has threatened to stop these men from submitting to each other or vice versa.
    This isn’t about tolerance. It is about vindication. It’s about your approval and acceptance.
    We have all done things which others may not approve of, including us, but are we wanting a law passed to make the wrong thing we did right? We accept our transgressions and know we may need to answer for them but do you hear of adulterers campaigning to have the law changed so that they can gain respectability?
    Homosexuals need to OWN what they do and not try to force our love and acceptance for what might go against all we believe in. Just as they have the right to their beliefs, which we will respect but may not agree with, they must also respect our beliefs.
