The White House is allocating tickets for the upcoming Easter Egg Roll to gay and lesbian parents as part of the Obama administration's outreach to diverse communities. [...]
White House officials said that tickets for Monday's Easter Egg Roll event were distributed to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender organizations, but did not specify how many or to which ones. Representatives from Family Equality Council, Human Rights Campaign, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and other groups confirmed they were invited and encouraged to have their members participate.
Conservatives complained three years ago that LGBT parents bringing their kids to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll was a "political statement," but it was their demands for exclusion and second-class citizenship which were truly political statements. It's nice to see that we've moved beyond them.
