Rollin' the joint: LGBT families join White House's eggy bash
Right now in our nation's capital, scores of LGBT families are gathered around the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll. And while some of the eggs might be hiding in or around a Bush, the beauty part is that this is the first time in eight years that queer families won't have to do the same.
So why won't gay fams be under cover this year? Well, because unlike the aforementioned Bush, the Obama administration has officially welcomed participating LGBT families. That's right -- our families are being recognized for exactly what we are: Part of the egg roll-loving (and eggroll-loving) public. Which is nice, since the eggs really should stay on the White House lawn, and not on the administration's face. Thank you, Easter Bunny Team O!
Cathy Renna, longtime activist and gay parent herself, is covering the inclusive festivities for The Bilerico Project. So if you've always wondered the punch line to the "How many gays does it take to to roll an egg?" joke, then you can go check out Cathy's on-going coverage:
