The White House will hold a closed-door roundtable discussion on issues facing bisexuals Sept. 23.
The event, described in an invitation by White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan as a session focused on "issues of importance to the bisexual community,” was first reported Thursday by the Washington Blade.
"Participants and administration officials will discuss a range of topics including health, HIV/AIDS, domestic and intimate partner violence, mental health and bullying,” Raghavan wrote.
A White House confirmed Thursday the event will take place, but decline to elaborate.
Human Rights Campaign spokesman Michael Cole-Schwartz, who said that his group would be attending the session at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, said the fact that the Obama administration was holding an event focused solely on bisexuals underscored its grasp of LGBT Americans.
“President Obama and this administration have made clear their commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues, and this event is further proof of their understanding of the needs of our community," he said.
