Vice President Joe Biden will address the nation's largest LGBT rights group this week.

Biden will headline the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) annual Spring Equality Convention on Friday in Washington, D.C.

“Vice President Biden is an incredible ally to the LGBT community and a strong advocate for fairness and equality for all people,” HRC President Chad Griffin said in a blog post. “He has played an integral role in the administration's unprecedented legacy of progress for the LGBT community and continues to be an important voice internationally for equality. We are honored he'll be joining us to speak at our Spring Equality Convention.”

Biden announced his support for marriage equality in 2012, ahead of President Barack Obama. Within days, Obama announced that he had “evolved” on the issue and now supports same-sex marriage.

The HRC Spring Equality Convention consists of training, workshops and a lobby day.
