This isn’t the first time Clinton has marched in a Pride parade.

Just before the parade began, Clinton’s campaign released a Pride video, in which a host of LGBTQ staff and supporters share their Pride wishes and the reasons they believe Clinton is good for the LGBTQ community. Check it out below.
