President Barack Obama will headline a major Democratic National Convention (DNC) LGBT gala in New York next month.

The June 17 fundraiser will take place at New York's Gotham Hall, reported. NY1 added that DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will also attend the event.

On the same day, the president will also attend a DNC event hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a strong supporter of LGBT rights.

“Under the President, we have seen more progress for our community than under any other administration in U.S. history,” DNC officials wrote.

“From hospital visitation rights, to workplace protections for transgender federal employees, to supporting marriage equality, we have so much to be proud of – and so much at stake in 2014.”
