After the White House announced a meeting with prominent leaders of the LGBT community to talk about Obamacare, they will also host a closed event to talk about issues concerning the bisexual community.
Scheduled for September 23, it is a precedent for the White House as “a roundtable discussion on issues of importance to the bisexual community” stated White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan in a press release. “Participants and administration officials will discuss a range of topics including health, HIV/AIDS, domestic and intimate partner violence, mental health, and bullying,”
The private event will take place at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building of the White House and will be “off the record and closed to members of the press.”
The Human Rights Campaign is among the participants and feels honored to be included.
“It’s a testament to this administration that they are focusing on all elements of the LGBT community and they should be applauded for hosting an event focused on some of the specific issues impacting bisexual people,” Human Rights Campaign spokesperson Michael Cole-Schwartz said in a press release.
