Two gay men have been arrested after a protest outside the White House on Thursday.

The men, who were protesting the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law were in a bid to talk directly with President Barack Obama by handcuffing themselves to the iron fence.

James Pietrangelo, 44, of Sandusky, Ohio and Daniel W. Choi, 29, are due to appear in the DC superior court today.

They were later arrested by the police for "failure to obey a lawful order." After being asked to remove themselves from the fence.
