President Barack Obama will attend a fundraiser celebrating the passage of gay marriage in New York.

The Wednesday event in New York City is being billed as a “small reception to celebrate the progress in the LGBT community,” the New York Post's gossip column Page Six reported.

This is the first time Obama has attended a gay fundraiser in New York since lawmakers approved a gay marriage law in June. Five additional states – Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Iowa – and the District of Columbia allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

The president attended a New York City gay fundraiser in June as lawmakers deliberated the marriage bill but he did not endorse its passage.

Obama is expected to address the crowd.

Tickets for the event, scheduled to take place at the Midtown Sheraton, range from $10,000 to $35,800.

Event organizers include designer Michael Smith, Architectural Digest editor in chief Margaret Russell, Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia, Be the Change CEO Kevin Jennings, Evercore Partners head Charles Myers, Pfizer communications chief Sally Susman, DNC committee treasurer Andrew Tobias and retired ad executive Michael Sennott.
