President Barack Obama issued a video statement that aired Friday before 3,000 LGBT rights advocates assembled in Atlanta this week for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s 25th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change.
The recorded message comes just days following Obama’s second term inaugural address where he called for full LGBT equality.
The conference attracts more than 3,500 people from all over the country every year, including presenters and participants from from the business community, elected officials, students, faith leaders and staff and volunteers of non-profit organizations.
The five-day program features over 350 workshops and training sessions, and networking opportunities.
