White House Hosting TBLG Conferences Across US

In case there were any doubts among  trans and SGL people in our ranks that the Obama Administration is the most rainbow community friendly one in US history, the White House announced yesterday that it was embarking on a series of  conferences across the country from February to June 2012.

The stated purpose according to a press release is so that the public can “hear directly” from the administration on efforts “to ensure health, well-being, security, justice, and equality for LGBT Americans.”.

The first according to a Washington Blade report  is slated for Philadelphia on February 16 in conjunction with the White House LGBT Conference on Health being held there. 

The events are a collaboration between the White House Office of Public Engagement and other offices and agencies and will cover topics such as housing and homelessness, safe schools and communities as well as HIV/AIDS prevention   

The White House will make more details public about the TBLG conferences as this evolves and other conference locations and dates are confirmed.
