I’m so torn, Gabe!

I love Pete Buttigieg and what he’s doing for LGBTQ people just by running for president. I love the power in his message, and his potential for bringing communities together.

But I’m a leftist. A former member of Act Up and Queer Nation. I was a Bernie Sanders fan before anybody knew who Bernie Sanders was. Elizabeth Warren’s politics align with my own so clearly.

I don’t want to support a moderate for president .

But I want to support Pete. I’ll be thrilled if he takes the nomination. Even if I’d be a little worried that he doesn’t get it on some of the issues that matter deeply to me.

One thing I know: if he ends up running against Trump, I’m on his side 1000%.
