This has to be one of the most inspiring speeches, not just about LGBT rights, but the realization that “gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.” as Clinton states in her address.
We have come a long way, not just as The United States of America, but as a global community who’s understanding that my rights are your rights and your rights are mine.
We are reaching the dawn of a new generation where equality will surely be a fight of the past, and our children’s children will look back and think, “Oh my. I can’t believe the world was that way.” I know when I think about the Civil Rights Movement, it makes me absolutely disgusted that my own country would treat its own citizens that way. The same applies to the LGBT community of today.
It is disgusting that the rights of those people who teach us, care for us in the hospital, defend our supposed “freedom” here in this country, cannot live their lives the way they deserve to.
Please take a moment to share this post, the video, or your thoughts about Clinton’s speech, life, rights, etc…
