The Gay Couple In Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Video Invited Her To Their Wedding

Jared Milrad and Nathan Johnson, the engaged couple featured in Hillary Clinton’s “Getting Started” campaign video, were so touched they made the final cut that they’ve invited the former First Lady to their upcoming wedding.

“Thanks for inviting us to your big day,”  Milrad tweeted on Sunday. “We’re returning the favor & inviting you to ours. … BTW @HillaryClinton, feel free to bring a +1.”

“Getting Started” features testimonials from the kind of everyday Americans Clinton says she speaks for, including Milrad—who discusses his upcoming nuptials, and is shown holding hands with Johnson.

“When we were first contacted, they basically told us a little bit about what they would be doing and said they were interviewing people going through big changes in life and also said that it was something affiliated with Hillary, but didn’t exactly say what it would be,” Johnson told the Washington Blade.

The two are staunch Clinton backers. “We really believe that we need a progressive leader in the White House for years to come,” Milrad says.

The couple is planning on tying the knot on July 19 in Chicago in a park adjacent to Lake Michigan, then hold a reception at Center on Halsted, the city’s main LGBT community center. The Clinton campaign hasn’t said whether she’ll attend.

Meanwhile the clip is getting a 18-and-over warning label in Russia, because Milrad and Johnson holding hands could be considering “promoting gay propaganda,” which has been outlawed in the country.

Milrad tweeted his response.
