Former First Lady/Secretary of State, Future President and Current Bad Bitch Hillary Rodham Clinton surprised an engaged lesbian couple with a letter thanking them for their support, congratulating them on their pending nuptials and praising their involvement with the LGBT youth empowerment organization, It Gets Better.
Los Angeles lady-lovers Kassie Thornton and Christy Spitzer had appeared in Clinton’s presidential announcement video along with another same-sex couple, Chicago’s Nathan Johnson and Jared Milrad. Spitzer, a producer on MTV’s It Gets Better specials, wrote a letter to the Clinton campaign, which moved the Presidential candidate to send a letter of her own.

We feel so honored to receive such a heartfelt letter from (hopefully) the first female President of the U.S.! #Hillaryforamerica #hillary2016 #itgetsbetter #061315 #allinwithkassieandchristy #bigdreams #gettingreadyforthewedding #grateful”
“It’s not every day that you open your mailbox to find a letter of gratitude, love, and support from the potential first female president of the U.S. We felt so honored, touched, and downright humbled,” Spitzer and Thornton told The Huffington Post. “We are blown away that she is a heartfelt supporter of the ‘It Gets Better Project,’ and is aware how important their powerful message is. The organization does positive things for many young people all over the world!”
Kassie and Christy will get married on June 13 and have naturally invited Clinton to attend. Seeing as she also received an invite for Nathan and Jared’s July 13 ceremony, Hills has got a big summer of campaigning and gay weddings on her plate.
