How has Secretary Clinton fought for the LGBT community?
Or, tools for talking to your family about your lifestyle of support for Hillary Clinton and the values she still represents.
Secretary Clinton made defending and building on progress for LGBT families a priority in her campaign again, again, and again.
Her campaign staff waited as nervously as the rest of us for the Supreme Court ruling last June.
She made this an important part of her life-long fight for marginalized and underrepresented Americans.
If you have time...watch her historic speech to the Human Rights Council on Dec. 6, 2011.
Then read this article on the impact of her global leadership through word and action as Secretary of State.
"I am talking about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, human beings born free and given bestowed equality and dignity, who have a right to claim that, which is now one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time."
"Being gay is not a Western invention; it is a human reality. And protecting the human rights of all people, gay or straight, is not something that only Western governments do."
"...no practice or tradition trumps the human rights that belong to all of us. And this holds true for inflicting violence on LGBT people, criminalizing their status or behavior, expelling them from their families and communities, or tacitly or explicitly accepting their killing."
"And finally, to LGBT men and women worldwide, let me say this: Wherever you live and whatever the circumstances of your life, whether you are connected to a network of support or feel isolated and vulnerable, please know that you are not alone. People around the globe are working hard to support you and to bring an end to the injustices and dangers you face. That is certainly true for my country. And you have an ally in the United States of America and you have millions of friends among the American people."
LGBT Americans have an ally in Hillary Rodham Clinton. Please spread this important message as she continues to speak up for all Americans in this campaign.
