Biden also bought a round for all the bar patrons as he went about introducing himself and shaking hands with the various visitors. The move followed two major fundraisers in New York for the former vice president, who also brought two major out-queer supporters in tow: former DNC finance chairman Henry R. Muñoz III and lawyer Tim Gill. Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, also attended.
The Biden campaign released a statement following his stop. “VP Biden and Dr. Biden,” it read, “stopped by Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York this afternoon to commemorate 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and demonstrate their unwavering support for the LGBTQ community during Pride Month and the NYC World Pride celebrations.”
Biden currently leads the crowded field of 2020 Democratic candidates in most national polls.
