To The Daily Sun,
I was so glad to see that the Human Rights Council has endorsed Hillary Clinton. Tremendous progress has been made in the past decade for the LGBT community. Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been repealed, and people can now marry whomever they love anywhere in America.
But we still have more work to do. We need to tackle the epidemic of bullying against LGBT children in schools. We need to secure national anti-discrimination protections for LGBT Americans once and for all. And with a Republican Party that promises to undo much of this progress knocking on the door of the White House, it is imperative that Democrats keep the presidency in 2016.
In Hillary Clinton, we have a candidate who, as Secretary of State, sent the entire world a message that "gay rights are human rights" and worked to improve the standing of LGBT people across the globe. I echo the Human Rights Council statement that she has laid out the "most robust and ambitious LGBT plan any candidate for president has ever laid out," and I know she will make LGBT rights a central pillar of her presidency.
