#ThankYouPete takes over social networks as LGBTQ individuals react to Buttigieg dropping out/ LGBTQ Nation
Without presidential prospect Pete Buttigieg dropping out of the Democratic primary, the election returned to the unfortunate normalcy of a bunch of white cisgender candidates. But LGBTQ people around the nation saluted Mayor Pete’s history-making project on social networks with the hashtag #ThankYouPete.
While some groups of self-described queers took umbrage that the prospect wasn’t “gay enough” or decried his centrist and practical positions, most saw it for what it was– a substantial leap forward in LGBTQ rights that can only cause more addition in the political procedure for the community.
With tributes gathering, assembling the very best is difficult, but these tweets provide you the taste of the genuine feeling on display screen last night. Whether the tweets originated from stars or teens, rural queer folks or huge city liberals, the message stayed the exact same. Thank you, Pete.
Thank you for inviting me into your homes, sharing your stories, and putting your trust in me. We released our campaign because Americans are starving for a new type of politics that brings us together.
And together we’ll beat this president and build the era that must come next. pic.twitter.com/QDajvx1lpL
