Mark Segal Enjoys Hug By First Lady Michelle Obama In Charlotte

When last we wrote about Philadelphia Gay News publisher Mark Segal, he was in the middle of a firestorm over photos (seen below) taken inside the White House, where he and the others depicted were invited by President Obama for an LGBT reception. But judging by the above photo, which Segal posted on Facebook earlier this afternoon, he didn’t burn any bridges with his Washington D.C. connections. The photo was taken today in the Grand Ballroom of Charlotte’s Marriott Hotel at a Human Rights Campaign/Victory Fund luncheon honoring LGBT elected officials, one day after First Lady Michelle Obama revved up delegates at the Democratic National Convention.
