Hillary Clinton has landed firmly on the side of love and equality on this issue that means so much to so many. But she's been speaking out in favor of LGBT equality for a while now, perhaps most famously by declaring that:
"Being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights."
After that historic speech she delivered as Secretary of State, she followed up as a private citizen with this 2013 video for the Human Rights Campaign giving full support for same-sex marriage.
Has she evolved on this issue over the years? Certainly, as have many progressive leaders such as President Obama and Vice President Biden.
But this much is clear: her statement today is no "flip flop" and should come as a surprise to no one.
