Approximately one month after completing her historic assignment as Secretary of State (SoS) for President Barack Obama, where she logged more global miles than any previous (SoS), former First Lady of Arkansas, former First Lady of the United States, former Senator, and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has published a new video asserting her support for same sex marriage. The video was posted yesterday on the Human Rights Campaign website.
Many people were shocked: “Didn’t she already support same-sex marriage?” they asked. Well, yes and no. As SoS, Mrs. Clinton has always supported LGBT rights over all the globe, as part of her push for rights for all, including women, the poor and disenfranchised, and workers. However, as SoS, there was only so much she could publicly state as actual policy–since she was representing the United States of America.
Now that she is a private citizen again for the first time in over twenty-five years, her very first public social rights initiative is for LGBT rights and same sex marriage.
Thank you Mrs. Clinton! You can thank her yourself right here.
