The Family Pride Coalition is encouraging all LGBT families to attend the annual White House Egg Roll on April 17, 2006. Hundreds of families attend every year, and Family Pride wants ours to be among them. They will provide non-political t-shirts to identify participants as LGBT families.
If you think you might attend, it’s worth reading the details on the Family Pride Web site, and signing up so Family Pride can better organize their resources. Family Pride asserts that their activities are a celebration of our families, and not a political protest, but say there’s a small chance the White House might try to stop LGBT families from participating. As reported by 365Gay today, conservative reporters are already asking the president’s press secretary about it. Scott McClellan was noncommital.
