White House Officials To Meet With Activists To Discuss Bisexual Issues

The Obama administration has announced that next month it will hold the first ever White House round table to discuss bisexual issues. The session, to be held September 23, will be off the record and closed to the press. No word on whether President Obama will put in an appearance.

Invitations to the meeting were sent via email on August 16. In the invitation, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Blade, White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan  says that “participants and administration officials will discuss a range of topics including health, HIV/AIDS, domestic and intimate partner violence, mental health, and bullying.”

“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,” HRC spokesman Michael Cole-Schwartz told the Blade.
