Mpls. gay couple, sons included in Easter celebration at White House

The article avoids stereotypes by talking about how this is the first time that gay families have been invited to the Easter Egg Roll at the White House. I did not previously know how the White House invited families to the Easter Egg Roll. I also did not know that this was the first time that the White House seeked out homosexual families to come to the Egg Roll.

The article uses both quotes and data to tell information that I previously did not know. For instance, data on exactly how many LGBT families will participate. Quotes are also used to reveal more personal details for more of a storytelling aspect. The article quotes the gay couple talking about how long the couple has been together and what the kids want to see at the White House.
