Is Jeremy Bernard the First Male White House Social Secretary? Will Hollywood Be Knocking at the White House Door More?

The White House social secretary is, for whatever reason, has always been a job held by a woman. But now the first ever man has been given the important role as the social gatekeeper and planner for the president  and his name is Jeremy Bernard. So who is Jeremy Bernard? And what else makes him his placement in this role historic?
Most recently Jeremy Bernard was the senior adviser to the U.S. ambassador to France. He also was a big part in  raising money for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign in Southern California. And you know what Southern California has? Movie stars and lots of them. And a large percentage of them were Obama supporters, so odds are we’ll be seeing just as much if not more players from tinsel town at White House events.

The other thing that makes him historic in this role. He is an openly gay man. And this isn’t the first time Obama made a history with his filling of this role. Desiree Rogers – Obama’s first social secretary – was the first African American to hold the job.

Obama said of the naming of the new role, “Jeremy shares our vision for the White House as the People’s House, one that celebrates our history and culture in dynamic and inclusive ways.  We look forward to Jeremy continuing to showcase America’s arts and culture to our nation and the world through the many events at the White House.”

“I am deeply humbled to join the White House staff as Social Secretary and support President Obama and the First Lady in this role,” Jeremy Bernard said.  “I have long admired the arts and education programs that have become hallmarks of the Obama White House and I am eager to continue these efforts in the years ahead.”
So, you Hollywood A-listers, you better pack your bags, looks like you may be getting an invite to the White House soon!
