These words make me very, very happy.

The announcement by @PeteButtigieg is an historic moment. He is a role model for all young Americans, and his message of hope and inclusivity resounds in this time of darkness. His candidacy marks a new era in our political and civic history. Welcome to the big stage, Mayor Pete.

Welcome to the race, @PeteButtigieg. Thank you for having the courage and intelligence to dismiss cynicism and homophobia and follow your dreams, the way so many of us have had to to succeed. You’re making history and creating a path for yourself and many others. Proud of you. https://t.co/fGN6DmruaX

You can quibble with if his politics are progressive enough (maybe they aren’t!) but it’s so cynical to ignore that fact that @PeteButtigieg being a viable candidate for President is so huge to millions of queer people who grew up worrying they were second class citizens.
