Clinton to Speak at Lesbian and Gay Rights Dinner

Accomplishing what no other sitting president has, President Clinton will address a Nov. 8 dinner sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay and lesbian civil rights group.

White House Spokesman Mike McCurry said that Clinton has worked closely with gay men and lesbians “on issues that are of primary concern” to the gay community, despite his support of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for homosexuals, a policy that has been criticized harshly by lesbians and gay men.
