White House names interim liaison to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community

August 10, 2011

The White House today named Raul Alvillar as its interim liaison to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. He replaces Brian Bond, deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, who is leaving to become the Democratic National Committee’s director of constituency outreach. Alvillar served as western political director for the Obama campaign, where he assisted with LGBT outreach. For the past two and a half years, he has served as the congressional relations officer at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Statement by Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey:

Congratulations to Raul Alvillar in being named the White House’s interim liaison to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. We look forward to working with him as he provides counsel to President Obama on issues of critical importance to LGBT people. The liaison is the voice of our community to the whole administration. The White House should continue building upon the foundation created by Brian Bond and the community to ensure our issues and concerns are heard and addressed at the highest levels of government.
