Hillary Clinton is coming to Washington, D.C. for an LGBT fundraiser tonight. “Clinton will be in Washington, D.C., on Monday night for a fundraiser hosted by and attended by predominantly lesbian supporters,” reports the Huffington Post.
“About 120 people are expected to attend the event, which is being billed as ‘an intimate fundraiser’ at the Woman’s National Democratic Club. The cost to attend is $2,700 per person. For the more generous, those willing to bundle $27,000 ahead of the event also get to attend a special reception with Clinton.
“The event is being hosted by Claire Lucas and her partner, Judy Dlugacz, who founded a travel company called Olivia, which sells cruises targeting the lesbian community. Lucas told The Huffington Post that she and Dlugacz decided a couple of weeks ago that they wanted to do something to support Clinton’s presidential run, so they started reaching out to their network of contacts to gauge interest. The result is Monday’s event, which Lucas estimates will be about 75 percent lesbian attendees from around the country. That’s atypical for an LGBT political fundraiser, which are by and large organized and attended by gay men.”
