Hillary Clinton is making her voice heard on same-sex marriage.
In a new video, released on Monday, the formerÂ secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate (please, let thatÂ happen), Â stated thatÂ â€śgay rights are human rights.â€™â€™
â€śI believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being,â€™â€™ she said in a video posted by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights advocacy group.
â€śLGBT 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,â€ť she said. â€śThat includes marriage. Thatâ€™s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples.â€ť
Her support for gay marriage comes after callsÂ to end bans on same-sex marriage by her husband Bill Clinton, President Obama and even some prominent Republicans.
Her announcement comes as the Supreme Court is about to hear two landmark gay rights cases that advocates hope will make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.
