Family in Florida gay adoption lawsuit to attend White House Easter egg roll

As he awaits a court ruling on the constitutionality of Florida's law banning gay people from adopting, Frank Gill and his recently adopted sons will attend this year's White House Easter Egg Roll. They are one of two families for whom Equality Florida has secured invitations to the annual family event.

The Third District Court of Appeals has yet to issued a decision on a lower court's finding that the ban is "unconstitutional."

"Florida's adoption ban is the most notorious state law in the country and we continue to work toward the day when it will be an embarrassing footnote in our nation's history," said Nadine Smith, Executive Director of Equality Florida. Miami-Dade residents Mayda Perez and Simone Mayer and their three children also will attend.
