Hillary Clinton Celebrates Marriage Equality By Redesigning Her Twitter Account In An Inspirational Way — PHOTO
Friday, June 26, 2015 will forever be a historical and celebratory day thanks to the Supreme Court of the United States ruling that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional. Many people have taken to Twitter to express their love and happiness for marriage equality, including 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. For her, rather than just posting the typical tweet, she redesigned her Twitter page to reflect her excitement and support for gay marriage. From a brand new profile pic to a rainbow-filled header photo, the 67-year-old politician is doing it right.
Immediately after SCOTUS revealed its ruling on same-sex marriage, Clinton tweeted she is "proud," along with a photo of a rainbow-colored version of the word "history." The she shared the following tweet, which is also pinned at the top of her page: "Proud to celebrate a historic victory for marriage equality—& the courage & determination of LGBT Americans who made it possible. -H"
In the past couple years, the Democratic presidential frontrunner has received some backlash for becoming pro same-sex marriage too late, after publicly changing her views on the issue. She's not always sided with gay marriage, but her views have definitely evolved and I admire her for that. Clearly, she's not letting negative opinions dissuade her from standing up with her opinion and for the equal rights of others — and her new Twitter page design makes that very apparent.
Rainbow never looked so good!
