Michele Bachmann, Republican candidate for president, on Friday addressed the California Republican convention in Los Angeles, where a flash mob of gay rights supporters protested the Minnesota congresswoman's appearance.

About 60 members of the gay rights group Courage Campaign gathered outside the JW Marriott hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

“Michele Bachmann, you can't pray the gay away,” one man yelled from one end of the plaza.

“That's right, we're queer and we're not going anywhere,” yelled a second man from the opposite side of the plaza.

The two men walked toward the center of the plaza, where they began dancing to Madonna's Like A Prayer. Other members quickly joined in the dancing. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Bachmann's family clinic run by her husband, Marcus Bachmann, has been accused of attempting to “cure” gay people of their sexuality. While Mr. Bachmann has claimed his clinic only offers “reparative therapy” to those who seek it, an underground investigation found “ex-gay” minister Janet Boyne's book Called Out on sale inside the clinic along with a typewritten note from Mr. Bachmann: “Janet is a friend. I recommend this book as she speaks to the heart of the matter and gives practical insights of truth to set people free.”

Michele Bachmann also put in an appearance on NBC's The Tonight Show, where she reiterated her stance against gay marriage.
