White House Announces Plan to Host Nationwide LGBT Conferences


In the early months of 2012, the White House intends to host a series of LGBT conferences nationwide in order to educate the public on the administration’s efforts to “ensure health, well-being, security, justice, and equality for LGBT Americans.”

The first conference will be on February 16th in Philadelphia, and focuses on health. Featured speakers include Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. The following events will continue until June. Subsequent conferences will cover issues of housing and homelessness, safe schools and communities, HIV/AIDS prevention, and several currently unannounced topics.
