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.
