Hillary Clinton unveils rainbow campaign logo ahead of Supreme Court case

Hillary Clinton has re-branded her campaign logo as a pride flag, as the Supreme Court begins hearing arguments in an equal marriage case.

The highest court in the US will today begin hearing oral arguments in a ground-breaking case concerning marriage bans – that could decisively bring equal marriage to all 50 states.

As the court readies for the two and a half hours of argument to the case – with a tightly-controlled time limit for arguments from each state, as well as lawyers representing 12 same-sex couples and two widowers – Mrs Clinton voiced her backing.

The former Secretary of State – who announced her run for President earlier this month – rebranded her ‘arrow’ logo on her official social media page.

The arrow, that was originally red and blue, is now coloured in the colours of a pride flag.

In a video launching her Presidential campaign last week, the Democratic hopeful featured a range of Americans discussing their plans for the future, including Jared Milrad and his partner who spoke about their plans to marry.

After the high-profile launch, Mr Milrad decided to tweet his thanks to Clinton for their inclusion in the video – and showed his appreciation by inviting her along to their big day.

The video also briefly featured a lesbian couple – who later revealed they’d had “no idea” what the footage would be used for.

Ms Clinton has already won the endorsement of LGBT rights group Equality California – over a year before the election, and before most candidates have even been announced.
