After President Obama announced his support for marriage equality, a group organizing a fundraiser on his behalf suddenly had to find a bigger venue. The event, featuring the pop singer Pink, is one of two LGBT-organized fundraisers Obama is expected to attend on the West Coast on Wednesday. A CNN analysis of President Obama’s biggest fundraisers, known as bundlers, shows that at least 33—or about one in every 16 bundlers—is openly gay. Together, they have raised at least $8 million for the campaign between January and the end of March.
