Clinton reassures gay youth on web

Hillary Rodham Clinton is seeking to offer reassurance to gay youths in a posting that is drawing wide attention on the web.

The Democratic presidential candidate made comments below a picture of an unnamed boy on the Humans of New York Facebook page with a tearful expression and the quote: "I'm homosexual and I'm afraid about what my future will be and that people won't like me."

"Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing," Clinton wrote on the Facebook page.
