First (gay) Male White House Social Secretary
To Vacate Position Next Month
White House Social Secretary Jeremy Bernard is the first male, and the first openly gay person ever to serve in this high profile position. A native of Texas, Bernard announced on April 8 that he will vacate that job next month, following a State Dinner for Japan. Many speculate that he will be joining the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in some capacity.

Mrs. Obama issued the following statement, “For the last four years, Jeremy has worked tirelessly to open the doors of the White House to as many people as possible and to make each and every event in the White House one to remember, not only for Barack and me, but for the tens of thousands of guests who pass through our doors each year.  I was lucky to have such a talented individual on my team, and I am equally lucky to have made a lifelong friend in Jeremy. Jeremy will be missed, and Barack and I wish him the very best in all of his future endeavors.”

Bernard was appointed to the position by President Obama on February 25, 2011. A replacement has not yet been named.

51-year-old Jeremy was raised in San Antonio, Texas, where he attended The Episcopal School of Texas. His father was a fundraiser for Robert Kennedy and Ted Kennedy. Bernard attended Hunter College in New York City, but did not graduate. He became a prominent Democratic fund raiser and gay rights advocate who served for eight years on the Democratic National Committee. He worked in the Obama Administration in Washington as the White House liaison to the National Endowment for the Humanities and later, in Paris, as senior adviser and chief of staff to the U.S. Ambassador to France.

Practice makes perfect:
