President Barack Obama is hosting a Pride reception at the White House tomorrow. Yippee!
The list of attendees hasn’t been made public, but The Washington Blade is reporting that “invitations generally were restricted to the heads of state equality groups, members of the LGBT community with compelling stories and a contingent of LGBT youth.”
We’ve sent a message to Chuck Smith, interim executive director at Equality Texas, to find out whether he’s invited or is going. And we haven’t heard anything about other invitees from Texas, so if you’re one of them, feel free to let us know.
Despite all our “compelling stories,” we didn’t receive an invitation here at Instant Tea. And yes, we feel snubbed. When is Obama going to start recognizing our accomplishments? Probably whenever we stop criticizing his administration and start giving him money.
