LGBTQ activists dumped cow manure and live cockroaches outside of a property industry award ceremony in London.

The event in question was the 2017 Property Awards at Grosvenor House last Tuesday. The ceremony is a black tie gala to celebrate real estate developers and investors.

According to the site’s booking page, an individual reservation costs £398 (about $496). The dropdown menu in which attendees are supposed to choose their titles includes entries like “lord,” “sir,” “prince” and “baroness.” By all appearances, this is an event for the rich and privileged.

A reporter for Dazed wrote:

The attendees are utterly homogenous. It’s white-tie tuxedo, figure-hugging cocktail dresses, and white faces as far as the eye can see. One smug twenty-something estate agent evidently feels his man-bun is an earth-shatteringly radical assault on the gender binary. The contrast between the pasty sea of capitalists and the rowdy mob of 50 or so protesters couldn’t be more stark, as a divine septuagenarian drag queen rubs shoulders with masked-up, black-clad anarchists.
