Jared Milrad and Nathan Johnson became overnight stars Sunday after they appeared holding hands in Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announcement video. The Chicago couple said they were happy to be featured in it and that they supported the former Secretary of State because of her position on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. They even invited Clinton -- and a plus-one, if she'd like -- to their wedding.
The two now live together in Chicago and have a rescue dog, Cooper. They got engaged on New Year's Eve 2013 and plan to marry July 19.

Milrad said a friend asked the couple if they wanted to help out with a Clinton video about people experiencing big life changes. The duo didn't know when the footage would be used, so they were surprised Sunday when the video dropped. “It was particularly moving to see Secretary Clinton feature a gay couple engaged to be legally married, the first of any major presidential candidate," Milrad told the Blade. "To us, this decision demonstrates Secretary Clinton’s commitment to LGBT equality and the type of inclusive leader she would be as president.”
