Only halfway through his first term, President Barack Obama has already appointed more openly gay officials than any other U.S. president.
Gay activist groups estimate Obama has made 150 of the appointments so far. About a dozen of them required Senate confirmation.
The White House is proud of the numbers and noted that President Obama has hired more gay officials than the Clinton and Bush administrations combined.
Many conservative groups have blasted some of the appointments, saying they will use their roles to push a homosexual agenda on the country.
