Speaking at a campaign event on Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said that her “highest priority” as president would be passage of a federal bill prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Introduced by Democrats in July, the Equality Act seeks to prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in seven key areas, including credit, education, employment, federal funding, housing, jury service and public accommodations, by effectively expanding the Civil Rights Act, originally approved in 1964.

At a town hall event at Keene State College in New Hampshire, a self-identified bisexual man asked Clinton how her views on LGBT rights have “evolved.”

Clinton, who backed civil unions, not marriage, for gay and lesbian couples until 2013, explained that part of her hesitancy was generational.

“Yes, my views did evolve. And I think most people my age would say the same thing – there might be some exceptions,” Clinton said.

“Largely because of my strong opposition to discrimination of any sort and my personal relationships with a lot of people over the years, I certainly concluded that marriage equality should be the law of the land.”

“I was thrilled when the Supreme Court made it the law of the land and I will enforce marriage equality [as president].”

Clinton went on to reiterate her support for the Equality Act.

“A lot of states now, because of the constitutional decision, you can get married on Saturday and get fired on Monday, because we still permit discrimination in employment and in public accommodations. Marriage isn't the end of the debate, it's a step along the path to true equality. You will be able to count on me to fight for you,” she added.
