Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday released a landmark policy paper addressing issues which affect the LGBT community.

Clinton's policy proposal is the first issued by any of the 2016 presidential candidates.

Clinton calls for passage of the Equality Act, banning conversion therapy for minors, protecting the rights of transgender people, and much more.

The paper's introduction praises the Supreme Court's June finding that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry, then adds “our work to reach the promise of full equality remains unfinished.”

“LGBT kids continue to be discriminated against and bullied at school, a restaurant can refuse to serve a transgender person, and a same-sex couple is at risk of being evicted from their home,” the document states. “Hillary Clinton believes that we must stand firm and keep fighting until every American can not only marry, but also live, work, pray, learn and raise a family free from discrimination and prejudice. She believes that America is at its best when we are inclusive, open, and striving towards true equality.”

National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) Executive Director Kate Kendell applauded Clinton's move.

“The policy positions announced today by Hillary Clinton sketch a bold vision for our community in this country and beyond,” Kendell said in a statement. “We applaud Secretary Clinton for her audacious and uncompromising support for a range of policy initiatives which, if realized, would improve the lives and futures of every lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender person in our nation and the world. By addressing issues like parenting and adoption, protections for LGBT youth, conversion therapy, violence against transgender people and transgender service in the military, and health care access for people with HIV – issues which have long been part of NCLR’s work – Secretary Clinton reflects a genuine understanding of the issues facing LGBT people and their families. Her passionate support is extremely gratifying.”

Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California, also offered praise.

“There can be no doubt Hillary Clinton will be a strong ally in the White House to the LGBT community,” he said in a statement. “Her policy platform on LGBT issues is truly groundbreaking.”
