A New Mexico gay couple heading to the 134th annual White House Easter egg roll said they will have some questions for the president about employment discrimination.
Jarrod Scarbrough, who works for a federal contractor, and his partner, Les Sewell, want to press President Obama about signing an executive order that would prohibit the government from doing business with any company or organization that does not have an internal policy banning workplace inequality or discrimination.
The two, who have been together 18 years, have an 8-year-old daughter who will participate in the annual event, according to USA Today.
"As so many families gather on the White House lawn next week, I hope that the first family takes a moment to reflect on how hard gay families like mine work to ensure that we have the stability and security that so many others take for granted," Scarbrough said.
