Hillary Clinton has released a new video, titled simply “Equal,” in support of granting all couples the freedom to marry.
The description of the video reads:
All love is equal. It’s time for marriage equality. Stand with Hillary Clinton in the fight for all LGBT Americans to be able to live, learn, work, and marry free from discrimination:http://hrc.io/1SHZPDR
It alternates between a speech given by Clinton herself and a man reading his vows to his groom at the altar, accompanying visuals of a diverse variety of same-sex couples getting engaged or married.
One topic the man covers is coming to terms with his sexuality; he reads, “I remember all the thoughts that ran through my head when I started to realize that I was gay: Why me? What am I gonna do? Will anyone love me? I’ll never get married.
“That’s the one that really hurt: I’ll never get married. I felt sad. I felt alone.”
But, standing at the altar with the love of his life, he says, “I’ll never feel alone again. I love you.”
In her own speech, Clinton says, “Some have suggested that gay rights and human rights are separate and distinct. But, in fact, they are one and the same.
“Being LGBT does not make you less human, and that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”
