Early last week, Cleve Jones sent a letter to President Obama inviting him to join LGBT people on the west lawn of the Capitol for the National Equality March. Read it above.
The President may not be in Washington D.C. during the March, as it was reported in mid-September:
"Obama, along with former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, has been invited to San Francisco for the Presidents Cup golf tournament, which takes place at Harding Park Golf Course October 6-11.
The National Equality March takes place October 11, which is National Coming Out Day.
In a Tuesday, September 15 phone interview, Tom Clark, the Presidents Cup executive director, confirmed that Obama, Clinton, and Bush have been invited, but he couldn't say whether they would attend the tournament. 'Normally, we don't hear anything until days before. … We have not received confirmation from anyone yet,' said Clark.
Previous Presidents Cup tournaments have featured appearances by the sitting president. This year's event marks the first time the biennial tournament is taking place on a public golf course."
