Clinton Pens Op-Ed on LGBT Equality in America


On Friday, CNN published an op-ed written by Hillary Clinton focusing on LGBT equality in America. In the piece, Clinton says that America is moving forward with the recent Supreme Court ruling and some states banning employers for firing an employee because of their sexual orientation. She warns, however, that Republican nominee Donald Trump has called himself a “traditional guy” when it comes to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights. Trump has said that he would support the First Amendment Defense Act, which would allow organizations to deny services to LGBT people citing their religious beliefs as their reason. Clinton vowed to keep fighting for equal rights for everyone and supports the Equality Act ensuring federal equality for all LGBT Americans. The full op-ed can be read HERE.
