Historic moment! On Wednesday May 26, 2021 White House principal debut press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre became the first openly gay spokeswoman and the first Black woman in 30 years to address journalists on behalf of the president when she took the podium. She said, “It’s a real honor to be standing here today. I appreciate the historic nature, I really do…Clearly the president believes that representation matters, and I appreciate him giving me this opportunity, and it’s another reason why I think we’re all so proud that this is the most diverse administration in history.”
PrideVMC stands with Karine Jean-Pierre and all those who are breaking barriers and creating long overdue historic firsts.
