The White House Will Be Hosting LGBT Pride Month Celebration – Waiting For My Invitation….Again

The Washington Blade, is reporting that this year, as in the past two, the White House will again be hosting an LGBT Pride celebration.

White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the celebration would take place before the month is out, but added further information isn’t yet available. Later this month, the White House will hold a reception to observe LGBT Pride month, the official said. Further details will be provided at a later date.

This will  be the third such Pride celebration at the White House. 

The first years guests mainly included mostly National Gay Inc (un) notables such as Joe Solmonsleaze Solmonese from the HRC and Rea Carey of the (Un)Task Force, while the second year’s invitees included mainly youth leaders and state equality groups.

With Obama’s 2012 re-election coming up and the needed backing of the LGBT community who knows who’ll be on the list.  (But I can guarantee you it most probably won’t be me.)

Maybe this is why the HRC came out so early endorsing Obama in 2012.  Little Joe probably wanted to make sure that his invitation didn’ t get lost in the mail like mine does every year.
