Just when we think we couldn't love Hillary Clinton anymore, she finds a way to prove us wrong!
The former Secretary of State has never shied away from social issues and was a huge advocate for gender equality before stepping down from office, and now she is also showing support for same-sex marriage!
In a video posted for the Human Rights Campaign, Hillary shares her beliefs on marriage equality saying:
"LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage."
She goes on to explain why the issue is important to her personally, saying:
"A few years ago Bill and I celebrated as our own daughter married the love of her life, and I wish every parent that same joy. To deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons solely on the basis of who they are and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own God-given potential."
Can someone get us a tissue over here?!
Ch-ch-check out Hillary's inspiring speech (above)!
Although she is no longer in office, it is always great to see such an influential figure speak out for a great cause! We can't even begin to say how proud we are of Hillary!
