Many people are saying that Hillary Clinton’s recent speech in honor of International Human Rights Day the “I Have a Dream Speech” for our LGBT community. Here are some excerpts from her speech:

“I am talking about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, human beings born free and given bestowed equality and dignity, who have a right to claim that, which is now one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time… So we, like all nations, have more work to do to protect human rights at home.”

“…I want to talk about the difficult and important issues we must address together to reach a global consensus that recognizes the human rights of LGBT citizens everywhere… Some have suggested that gay rights and human rights are separate and distinct; but, in fact, they are one and the same.”

“Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal, or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”

“No matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we are, we are all equally entitled to our human rights and dignity.”

“And finally, to LGBT men and women worldwide let me say this: Wherever you live and whatever the circumstances of your life, whether you are connected to a network of support or feel isolated and vulnerable, please know that you are not alone. People around the globe are working hard to support you and to bring an end to the injustices and dangers you face. That is certainly true for my country. And you have an ally in the United States of America and you have millions of friends among the American people.”

“Let us be on the right side of history, for our people, our nations, and future generations, whose lives will be shaped by the work we do today. I come before you with great hope and confidence that no matter how long the road ahead, we will travel it successfully together.”
