Vice President Joe Biden will headline the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) 19th annual National Dinner in Washington, D.C. next month.

“Vice President Biden has stood up for the rights of all Americans to live their lives free from discrimination and fear throughout his remarkable career, and he’s a true champion of LGBT equality,” HRC President Chad Griffin said in announcing Biden's participation in the Saturday, October 3 event.

“From his historic announcement in support of marriage equality to his ongoing commitment to achieving full federal equality for LGBT Americans, the Vice President has proven time and again that he’s a stalwart ally to our community, and we’re honored he’ll be joining us to deliver the keynote address at the HRC National Dinner,” he added.

Biden has not said whether he will make a run for the White House in 2016.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will address the group earlier in the day.
