Group Touts Presidential Appointments
Special Report - October 28, 2010
More openly homosexual, bisexual and transgender individuals have been appointed by President Barack Obama to official positions in his administration than any other presidential administration in American history, according to recent press reports. The Los Angeles Times and Associated Press report that President Obama has appointed an estimated 150 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals during his first term alone. By comparison, former President Bill Clinton appointed about 140 LGBT individuals to government positions during his eight years in office.
Among President Obama’s most controversial homosexual appointees were lesbian activist and Georgetown University law professor, Chai Feldblum, who was appointed to the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), and Kevin Jennings, founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), who was appointed to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.
The Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute, which operates the Presidential Appointment Project with several other national homosexual advocacy groups, lists 124 of President Obama’s top LGBT appointees on its website. The project describes itself as a “a talent bank for openly LGBT professionals seeking opportunities to improve our federal government’s policies and processes.” According to the project’s fact page, although it has no official role in the White House, “GLLI staff collects, organizes and categorizes all resumes it receives. When appropriate, it will meet with staff from the administration to review and recommend applicants qualified for available positions.”
