Washington, DC — LGBTQ Victory Institute praised the appointment of Reggie Greer to be President Joe Biden's Director of Priority Placement at PPO and Senior Advisor on LGBTQ Issues at the White House. Greer served as the Director of Constituent Engagement at Victory Institute until joining the Biden presidential campaign in March 2020. In his new role as the senior advisor on LGBTQ issues, Greer will be charged with executing on President Biden's vision to create the most LGBTQ-inclusive administration in history and will act as a bridge between the LGBTQ community and the administration.
Greer will be joined by Hannah Bristol, who was appointed Associate Director of Public Engagement, in advising on LGBTQ issues, along with youth and progressive issues.
Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Institute, released the following statement about Greer's appointment:
"Reggie is a ray of sunshine in the conflict-driven world of politics and the respect and trust he's earned from LGBTQ leaders will make him an extremely effective advisor. He exemplifies the America United ethos, with a rare ability to bring diverse communities and interests together and rally them behind a common cause and vision. He will be invaluable as a bridge between the administration and the millions of LGBTQ Americans relying on President Biden to bring needed change to our nation. I am thrilled about his appointment and am eager to continue working together on moving equality forward for our community."
Greer served as the Director of Constituent Engagement at Victory Institute for more than three years, building and strengthening the organization's LGBTQ elected officials network and training LGBTQ people to run in states with low levels of equality.
Victory Institute's Presidential Appointments Initiative will put forward hundreds of exemplary LGBTQ candidates for positions throughout the Biden administration and advocate for their consideration.
