Gay Couple To Confront Obama At Easter Egg Roll

Claire Gordon

On Monday, the First Family is hosting the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. More than 35,000 winners of an online lottery will join the Obamas on the South Lawn, for egg-hunting, live music, cooking demonstrations, storytelling, and one-on-one lobbying to get the president to sign an executive order prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation.

Jarrod Scarbrough and Les Sewell, who have been partners for 18 years, are trekking from Albuquerque, N.M., with daughter in tow, to the White House for the event, hoping to make a personal appeal to the president, reports The Washington Times.
