It’s really happening.
Right now on America’s front porch — a specially built platform on the West Portico of the Capitol, overlooking the National Mall —President Barack Obama is sitting out a presidential inauguration for the first time since 2009.
New York City native Donald J. Trump, real estate tycoon, reality television star and president-elect, is being sworn-in to take his place.
I know, right?
And notorious homophobe and anti-transgender former Indiana governor Mike Pence is taking the oath as vice president.
LGBTQ Nation is at the Capitol and in cities around the world, covering the inauguration, and the protests as well.
Face it: you don’t want to miss this moment in history, and you don’t want to watch it alone. So watch it with us.
