Hillary’s New LGBT Ad Is Radically Great

by First Amendment –

The author makes a great case here and as he mentions, he hasn’t been all in with Secretary Clinton in the past. He was persuaded by this ad, among other things he mentions in his piece.

While it’s wonderful are society is evolving for the better on LGBT rights, there are still barriers out there that the LGBT community faces.

We want our society to evolve to the point that something as simple as affection in public is considered normal by all human beings, which it most certainly is.

Watch the ad below. I think it’s great!


We are constantly inundated by heterosexual kisses; we see them when we turn on the TV, when we go to a sporting event, when we step outside the house. Straight people are permitted to kiss pretty much anywhere, anytime, without thinking twice about it—and only the most puritanical reactionary would ever complain. That’s a key entitlement of heterosexuality.

Given the distressingly puritanical rules that govern gay PDAs, it’s both impressive and heartening that Clinton includes gay kisses in her official campaign spots. The ad forces viewers to confront images that might make them feel slightly uneasy, then encourages them to view such affection as a normal, healthy manifestation of adult intimacy. Clinton’s dubious long-term record on gay rights has given me pause in the past. But her new ad, combined with a recent slew of strikingly passionate pro-gay speeches, has persuaded me that, at the very least, she’ll support and expand President Barack Obama’s incredible legacy on LGBT rights.
