Out2Enroll video has men in holiday undies promoting subsidized healthcare

LOS ANGELES, December 20, 2013 – The Obama administration has teamed up with a campaign called #Out2Enroll, the brainchild of the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that focuses on “improving the health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community,” according to their website.

On December 18, 2013 the group uploaded this above video to their Youtube channel. The video seems to encourage risky sexual behavior and promiscuity. 

An enthusiastic singer, against the musical backdrop of “Let it Snow” sings such memorable lines as:

Hope you’re stuffed from your Thanksgiving
Now ’tis the season of giving
‘Fore the Doctor brings a lump of coal

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

And, when it’s time for resolutions
A health insurance solution,
Don’t get left in the cold,

Out2Enroll

Out2Enroll

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

When you finally meet Mr. Right
Never again will you be alone
You’ll be glad you went to the site
Together you’re a happy home

Pre-existing conditions won’t stop ‘em

New plans are better; can’t top ‘em
Whether Bronze, Silver, or Gold
Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

Ahhh….Ooooo…

When you’re finally ready to go
The marketplace will guide the way
Online or by phone
Assistance to help you pay

The year is quickly ending
Your chance for January coverage suspending
No matter who’s under the mistletoe
Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

In September, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius met with the foundation at the  White House to prepare for Obamacare’s launch.

“Here is the fact you all need to keep in mind,” she said.  “One in three lower-income LGBT adults in America doesn’t have health insurance. We are talking about a community that can be hugely impacted by what’s about to happen.” 

Sebelius focused on telling the foundation  to make sure individuals knew HIV/AIDS would be a covered condition.

During the same meeting, Jeff Graham, executive director of Georgia Equality said the Health Initiative and Phillip Rush Center in Atlanta, Georgia received enough federal funding to hire one full-time navigator and two part-time navigators to help LGBT people in Georgia seek and purchase the plans best for their needs.

“Our navigator program will be running in early October. The open enrollment starts Oct. 1 and goes for six months. By early November we will have a good analysis of the plans and specifically for those with HIV,” Graham said.

Center for American Progress and the Federal Agencies Project are also involved in the campaign. The foundation did not immediately return our phone call for comment.
