Former VP Joe Biden to keynote gay rights dinner Saturday in Columbus

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden will visit Columbus on Saturday, his presidential campaign announced Tuesday.

Biden, who last visited Columbus in 2018 to stump for then-gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray, is one of about two dozen Democrats running for president in 2020. He will be the guest speaker at the Human Rights Campaign’s 2019 Columbus dinner, set for the Ohio Union at the Ohio State University. The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest LGBTQ rights organization.

Actor Jake Choi of the upcoming film “The Sun is Also a Star” and the TV series “Single Parents” will be receiving the Visibility Award.

“Vice President Joe Biden is a strong and visible ally to the LGBTQ community in our fight for full federal equality,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.

2. From the article:

 

“His bold declaration supporting marriage equality helped change hearts and minds throughout America, and his work during the past two years as a leader of the Biden Foundation to advance LGBTQ rights at home and abroad is critical — particularly at a moment when the equality and dignity of this community are under attack across the globe.”
