Her husband may be fighting the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” but Cindy McCain seems to be well aware of the prejudices facing LGBT teens today, and she’s not afraid to talk about it.

McCain was attending Elle’s 25 at 25 party in Hollywood with daughter Meghan when she took time outto talk about Tyler Clementi and the other recently reported cases of teen suicide.

“Unfortunately, a terrible tragedy has occurred, but something was learned from it,” she said. “And something good will come from it too. It’s time people all around the globe stop hate. There’s really no room for hate.”

Last year Cindy McCain posted for the NO H8 campaign, joining her daughter in supporting the fight for same-sex marriage. In recent months Sen. John McCain has been at the forefront of opposing gay rights.
