A lesbian couple who are among the plaintiffs in a lawsuit challenging Florida’s constitutional ban on same marriage, have been invited to participate in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll with their 5-year-old son.

Melanie and Vanessa Alenier will attend the annual event, hosted Monday, April 21, by the First Family on the South Lawn of the White House.

In January, the Aleniers were one of six couples that joined Equality Florida Institute in filing a lawsuit aimed at allowing same-sex couples to marry in Florida.

The case is Pareto v. Ruvin.
