President Obama will attend the Democratic National Committee’s attend its LGBT gala next month in New York City, the DNC has announced.

DNC CEO Amy Dacey told supporters in an email that soccer star Abby Wambach actor George Takei of “Star Trek” fame are also scheduled to attend.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” wrote Ms. Dacey, according to the Washington Blade. “With this summer’s incredible Supreme Court ruling that made marriage equality the law of the land, this year’s LGBT gala will be especially celebratory.”
