There are always going to be naysayers out there who believe that bisexuality is a “phase” or a “sexual flight of fancy,” but President Obama is not one of them. The Washington Blade reports that the Obama administration is set to hold a private conference next month exclusively dedicated to issues facing the bisexual community. The White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan called the event “a roundtable discussion on issues of importance to the bisexual community” where “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,” said Michael Cole-Schwartz, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign how plans to participate.
To this I say, HELL YEAH.
