Obama Throws a LGBT Gay Pride Party This Week!

“On Tuesday June 22nd, the President will host a LGBT Pride Month event at the White House, where he is expected to deliver brief remarks. Invited guests include elected officials, state and local community leaders, and LGBT Americans from communities across the country — including many youth — who have stood up for equality.”

Invitations for the event were mailed last week. They say: “The President requests the pleasure of your company at a reception in celebration of LGBT Pride Month to be held at The White House.”

Earlier Obama declared June gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender pride month.

The president used the opportunity to cheer on lawmakers as they considered repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the 1993 law that forbids gay troops from serving openly, and highlight some of the gay rights initiatives advanced by his administration.

Saying that “our Nation draws its strength from our diversity,” Obama called upon Americans to “observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exits.”
