WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden will deliver a speech this week to the nation’s largest LGBT rights group.
Biden spoke at the group’s annual gala fundraiser last year, and President Barack Obama has also spoken to HRC.
The group endorsed the Obama-Biden re-election campaign, and has already started attacking likely 2016 Republican presidential candidates over their positions on gay rights issues.
Biden’s 2012 disclosure that he supported same-sex marriage increased the pressure on Obama, who announced shortly thereafter that he had changed his position and now supports gay marriage.
Biden has described gay rights as “the civil rights issue of our day.”
