It looks like the gays may have the best seat in the house at President Obama's State Of The Union address.
Tracey Hepner, co-founder of the Military Partners and Families Coalition, which works as a support group for LGBT military famlies has scored a plum seat with First Lady Michelle Obama!
More after the jump.
The Washington Post reports:
"Tracey Hepner of Arlington, who co-founded the Military Partners and Families Coalition, a support group for LGBT military partners and their families, has been chosen to sit with first lady Michelle Obama during the State of the Union address Tuesday night, the White House said Monday.
Hepner works for the Department of Homeland Security as a master behavior detection officer, and she is married to the first openly gay or lesbian general in the military, Army Brig. Gen. Tammy Smith. They were married in the District last March.
A White House official said the first lady’s box will include a variety of Americans whose lives would benefit from the policy proposals President Obama will announce Tuesday, including victims of gun violence, military families and those involved in immigration reform. The White House declined to be more specific on those proposals Monday."
Do you think this could be a promising sign of things President Obama will be covering in his address?
