NEW YORK — The Democratic National Committee has announced that President Obama will attend its LGBT gala next month.

Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC, in an email to supporters noted that Abby Wambach of the U.S. women’s soccer team and gay actor George Takei are also scheduled to attend the Sept. 27 event.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” wrote Dacey. “With this summer’s incredible Supreme Court ruling that made marriage equality the law of the land, this year’s LGBT gala will be especially celebratory.”

The gala will take place two days after Pope Francis is scheduled to leave New York for Philadelphia.

The U.N. General Assembly is expected to open its 2015 session on Sept. 15. Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa was unanimously elected president of the body last year.
