Hillary Clinton reaches out to gay teen

Humans of New YorkWe posted this image the other day to our Facebook page from the Humans of New York blog.

The caption with the photo read;

“I’m homosexual, and I’m afraid about what my future will be and that people won’t like me,”

The sad image drew a big response from people around the world who offered the teen messages of hope for his future. US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also saw the image and offered some encouragement to the young man.

“Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing,” Mrs Clinton wrote on Twitter. “You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you — there will be lots of them – H.”

The former Secretary of State appears to have written the message personally as she signs personally written tweets ‘H’, while other are created by her campaign staffers.
