Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign released a video Saturday in celebration of Pride Month. The 3-minute video includes appearances by staffers, volunteers and supporters sharing coming out stories, calls for LGBT equality and testimonials in support of the Democratic presidential hopeful.

"As our community celebrates pride each year, we applaud the progress we've made and re-dedicate ourselves to the work that remains," said Dominic Lowell, the campaign's Director of LGBT Outreach. "It is in that spirit that the Hillary for America family made this pride video -- to bring awareness to the challenges that the LGBT community faces and let them know they're not alone."

Transgender activist and Clinton supporter Cherno Biko is among those featured in the video. In her appearance, Biko says Pride is about "fighting for our rights, fighting for our dignity and making sure that all of us have equal opportunities."

While Clinton does not appear in the video, a quote of hers kicks it off: "You have millions of allies that will always have your back. I am one of them." These are the same words she shared with her Twitter followers after the tragic shooting in Orlando earlier this month.
