The Obama family welcomed volunteers to the White House to help decorate for the holiday season. Among them, was Family Equality Council board member, Tommy Starling. Starling placed an ornament with his family’s photo on the Blue Room tree, known to feature decorations honoring military families.
The 18.5 foot tree is the largest of the two dozen trees in the White House. Starling, his partner and their two children will have their photo seen by the 70,000 visitors expected over the holiday season.
