Hillary Clinton to address int'l LGBT issues

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will speak Tuesday on the importance of integrating LGBT issues in U.S. foreign policy, according to the State Department’s LGBT affinity organization.

Michelle Schohn, spokesperson for Gays & Lesbian in Foreign Affairs Agencies, wrote Wednesday on her blog that Clinton would be making the address as part of the State Department’s celebration of Pride month.

Speakers from the Council for Global Equality, a group focused on LGBT inernational affairs, and other LGBT activists will hold a discussion during a subsequent panel.

The event will take place  Tuesday at 11 am at the State Department’s Loy Henderson Auditorium. The address is 2201 C Street NW.

GLIFAA is asking those interested in attending to e-mail glifaa@glifaa.org to RSVP and for more information.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Schohn as president of GLIFAA. She is the spokesperson and no longer has the title  of president.
