Chelsea Clinton Speaks To LGBT Youth

Chelsea Clinton spoke yesterday at the same HRC convention for LGBT youth at which Ellen Page came out on Friday.

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton said Sunday that the gay-rights cause made “incredible progress” on political and legal fronts in 2013, but progress should not be mistaken for success. “I’ve often been asked why issues of equality are so important to me. Frankly, I don’t know why they ask that question,” Clinton said. “This is about the premise and promise of our country. (It’s) always marching forward to a more perfect union. I was raised in a family where inertia is not an option.”
