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. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law.
Like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people I have known and loved, by my experience representing our nation on the world’s stage, my devotion to law and human rights, and the guiding principles of my faith.A few years ago, Bill and I celebrated as our own daughter celebrated the love of her life and I wish every parent that same joy.
Clinton is the most recent in a growing list of high-profile figures who have made public their support of same-sex marriage, including President Obama, Vice President Biden, and many others. And I am sure she will not be the last.
