Now that certain high-profile Republicans are coming out with their full-throated support of marriage equality, some Democrats have been reminded they need to speak up louder. To make sure the train doesn’t leave the station without her, here’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s explanation of why she’s about more than just marriage rights for the LGBT community.
Clinton, of course, is no newcomer to this: In December 2011, Clinton urged members of the U.N.’s human rights group to “be on the right side of history” and said that LGBT men and women “have an ally in the United States of America and you have millions of friends among the American people.”
Marriage equality is terrific and all, and it’s hard not to take pride in watching the tide shift, but it is also nice to hear about full equality, and for those living outside the confines of the United States. Good on her.
