Queer Activists Disrupt Pete Buttigieg

At the center of San Francisco's National LGBTQ Center for the Arts, two queer activists stood up and disrupted a private fundraiser for Pete Buttigieg after he received a question from the audience about his husband, Chasten.

The packed room quickly booed down the activists, drowning out their pointed questions on Friday with chants of "Boot-Edge-Edge! Boot-Edge-Edge!" as they were escorted out of the building.

"I respect your activism, but this is a gathering for supporters of our campaign and I just got a question about my husband and I'm really excited to answer it," Buttigieg quipped from stage, drawing strong applause from the crowd.

The activists were part of a group protesting outside the event that reflected a growing disquiet among the LBGTQ+ community when it came to the Buttigieg campaign. Buttigieg may be the first openly gay candidate to sweep the national stage and perform as well as he has in Iowa and New Hampshire, but more and more young queer voters say they feel he is not representative of them or their experiences.
