“I don’t think you need a lot of advice from me on bravery. You seem pretty strong,” replied Buttigieg. “It took me a long time to figure out how to tell even my best friend that I was gay, let alone to go out there and tell the world,” said Buttigieg.

He continued..“To see you willing to come to terms with who you are in a room full of thousands of people you’ve never met…”

The history making openly gay presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg who is often seen on the campaign trail with his husband Chasten Buttigieg, offered some advice to Zachary…“It won’t always be easy, but that’s OK because you know who you are.
