“It’s very exciting to be a part of this year’s event. My family and I look forward to representing LGBT health and wellness for Georgia on the lawn of the White House,” Ellis said in a statement.
Ellis and her partner, Lesley Brogan, and their two sons will join more than 35,000 people on the South Lawn of the White House for the 134th annual Easter Egg Roll that will include games, music and ways to educate families about exercise and healthy eating.
"In addition to all the fun and games, the day's activities — which will include sports courts and cooking demonstrations — will help educate families on smart ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily routines, which are key pillars of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative," says a press release from the White House.
According to a press release from the Health Initiative, White House officials contacted Jeff Graham, executive director of Georgia Equality, for help in picking an LGBT family to represent Georgia.
Ellis' selection is especially noteworthy this year as it comes at the end of National LGBT Health Awareness Week.
