Watch LIVE: LGBT Pride Reception at the White House


UPDATE 5:55 pm: The White House had the Pride Event listed on its website as a livestreaming event, but it suddenly vanished when the time arrived. Standing by to see what happens...

UPDATE 6 pm: Apparently the livestream has been canceled. I'll have it up if they post it later.

President Obama is hosting an LGBT Pride reception at the White House. It's scheduled to begin at 5:45 pm EDT.


Meanwhile, before the reception began, activist group GetEQUAL reportedly handed out cards to attendees asking them to go on a scavenger hunt.

  1. Oh, the transparency of the Obama White House is truly a marvel to behold -- or not, as it turns out.

  2. I want him to answer, that if straight marriage should be decided by each state in bill as well.

  3. Sorry, but if you believe marriage should be decided by the states you should immediately speak out and work towards ending DOMA. I was a supporter, but this is really killing my interest in another 4 years of this.

    He's missing the opportunity to lead here.

  4. lame. ARUGHGHASJLDAKSJ: I'm sooo disgusted sometimes at America. It's easier to be treated like a human being in Canada and Europe?! I wish this country would shape up.

  5. I believe we are a hell of a lot closer to reaching our common goals with Obama's support and leadership than we might otherwise be. Consider where we would be with John McCain as president! UGH! Since Obama has been in office, there has been steady (remarkable) progress in achieving equality for all. Attitudes in America are changing and our goals are going to be met...sooner rather than later. Yea, I would want things to move faster, but the reality is that "Rapid progress comes slowly." Obama deserves our continued support for what he has accomplished. If you want better progress, you won't find it in any Republican candidate, that's for sure.
