"LGBT 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," said Clinton in the video, noting that those rights include legal marriage.

I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law, embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and for all Americans," noted Clinton, citing her work abroad, her faith, her devotion to human rights, and her personal relationships.
