President-Elect Barack Obama has named longtime gay Democratic operative Brian Bond as Deputy Director for the White House Office of Public Liaison.

brian-bond1Bond, a political veteran who has headed the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund and held several positions at the Democratic National Committee, will have managerial and strategic responsibilities for the entire Public Liaison office as well as function as the point person on LGBT issues. The liaison office is tasked with communicating and promoting presidential policies to individual constituency groups and serving as a sounding board for the president on policies that affect certain interest groups.

Bond served as Director of Constituency Outreach for the Obama-Biden campaign.

This appointment follows the appointments of two other openly gay people to the Obama administration including Brad Kiley as Director of the Office of Management and Administration and Nancy Sutley to head the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

    Although I am openly anti-gay, I don’t believe that being gay could hinder anyone from performing their duties outside the bedroom. If they qualify and are able to do the job, hey, bring them on board. As for their sexual orientation, I will keep praying for their deliverence.
