Hilary puts some rainbow colours into her campaign.
(Blogmensgo, gay blog on April 20, 2015) Hillary Rodham Clinton officially nominated on 12 April 2015 for the Democratic nomination for the US presidential election in November 2016. A gay couple and a lesbian couple appear in her Bid clip.
Below the inaugural campaign video of Hillary Clinton:
The film clip of average Americans talking about their next big project. That of Hillary, 67, is to run for the US presidency.
One of the couples formed by two men holding hands, intending to marry. It is in this case Milrad Jared and Nathan Johnson, in "real life” who are a couple in Chicago where they plan to marry on July 19, 2015. The two young guys in their thirties are members of a large American LGBT, Human Rights Campaign ( HRC ).
The clip also shows, very briefly, two women kissing.
The wife of former President Bill Clinton had lost the Democratic primary in 2008 to face Barack Obama. At the time Clinton was decidedly hostile to gay marriage.
Bill Clinton never stated during his two terms in office (1993-2001), any support marriage between same sex. It ratified in 1996 the "Law for the Defense of Marriage", also known as Doma law (Defense of Marriage Act) , which prohibited the establishment of a fact gay marriage at the federal level. The same year he also ratified the Law “Don’t ask, don’t tell" (do not ask, do not say anything) that allowed gays and lesbians to work in the military provided to hide their homosexuality.
It is only since 2013 that Hillary Clinton openly advocates of gay marriage. It was explained, that year, in the interview with HRC below.
Hillary Clinton' reversal with respect to gay marriage is the gradual acceptance of marriage between persons of the same sex by her age group: 65 years and over - at least among Democrats.
The candidate Clinton campaigned in addition to the prohibition of homophobic discrimination and full equality of rights. This equality in particular through the adoption of legislation in each state every married couple - or similar - on the same level with regard to taxation rights, insurance, health care, inheritance, social benefits, etc.
