We discuss former Mayor Pete’s horrific record in South Bend, how he’s decided to stop reading LGBTQIA media entirely because it criticized him, and what it means for someone to know they’re queer, but stay in the closet in order to pursue political power. Kade asks, poignantly, “someone who will sacrifice something that is that intimate to their personhood in pursuit of their political ambitions will sacrifice anyone.” And we discuss the meme LGBTQ: Let’s Get Buttigieg to Quit.

Salon: Pete said “if you had shown me exactly what it was inside me that made me gay, I would have cut it out with a knife. If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would’ve swallowed it before you had time to give me a sip of water,”
