Michelle Obama To Deliver Keynote Address At LGBT Delegate Luncheon

Today in Charlotte, First Lady of the United States and the wind beneath Barack Obama‘s wings, Michelle Obama, will take to the podium to deliver a keynote address at a luncheon honoring LGBT delegates at the Democratic National Convention.

The event is co-sponsored by the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and the Human Rights Campaign and is expected to draw some 600 people, including more than a handful of the 486 gay delegates currently attending the DNC.

According to Gay Politics, other speakers scheduled to participate include Victory Fund president and CEO Chuck Wolfe, HRC President Chad Griffin, Rep. Tammy Baldwin from Wisconsin, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Mrs. Obama is known for giving a good talk, delivering one of last night’s most popular quotes during her speech at the DNC: “Being President doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are.” Meanwhile, put that on a T-shirt and call it a classic.
