"I am proud to be here to support [Friendfactor founder Brian Elliot]," she said. Friendfactor is a new charity group that uses social networks to effect positive changes for gay rights.

Clinton added: "I certainly believe that those of us who are straight cannot expect our gay friends to do this on their own. And I certainly expect our straight friends to help us achieve that for all New Yorkers, for all Americans, and for all the children that at least Marc and I hope to have someday."
