Hillary Clinton Endorses Gay Marriage


She referenced the speech and her work on LGBT rights in her latest video, saying that many countries didn't like the new policy, but that it was her belief that standing up for the rights of the global gay community represented American ideals. Clinton talked about meeting young gay and lesbian women from countries that discriminated against homosexuality, who saw America as a "beacon of hope," and an example to the world.

It also inspired and challenged me to think anew about who we are and the values we represent to the world, "said Clinton. But she also said the United States still had some work to do.
