The presidential frontrunner continues in her quest to promote LGBT rights in her latest campaign video.

Hillary Clinton has continually expressed her support for LGBT equality throughout her presidential campaign, silencing her many critics on the issue.

The Democratic favourite’s history of supporting the under-represented is highlighted in her latest promotional ad, as she is seen giving various speeches supporting LGBT equality across society.

Throughout the clip, LGBT couples can be seen kissing and embracing as Clinton champions equal rights for all.

One clip show the former Secretary of State addressing the Human Rights Campaign in Washington DC recently.

“It’s outrageous that in 2015 you can still be fired for being gay, you can still lose your home for being gay, you can even be denied a wedding cake for being gay,” she says.

“This kind of discrimination goes against everything we stand for as a country.”

“I’m running for president to stand up for the fundamental rights of LGBT Americans and all Americans.”

The description of the video – uploaded to YouTube earlier this week – echoed the video’s sentiments.

“Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans deserve to live their lives free from discrimination,” it reads.

“Hillary knows the fight for LGBT equality will not be finished until every American can not only marry, but also live, work, pray, learn, and raise a family free from discrimination.”

Clinton has received endorsement from a host of LGBT campaigners, including US marriage equality hero Jim Obergefell.

The activist spoke last month to pledge his support for Clinton.

In a statement released to PinkNews, he said: “We have fought to not only change laws, but to change hearts, and now we need a president who will help us fight to eliminate the injustices that occur regularly in our community, and the best person to do that is Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary is a proven leader who will not only ensure that states are implementing marriage equality, but will work to end discrimination in our community whether it’s by passing the Equality Act or through state measures.”

Clinton – who was challenged on her apparent U-turn on LGBT rights during the recent Presidential debate – has also spoke up in favour of the Democrat-sponsored Equality Act to outlaw anti-LGBT discrimination, which is currently pending in Congress.
