Pete & Chasten Buttigieg Are Adopting

By Charlotte Robinson, August 18, 2021

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg & his husband Chasten announced they are adopting a child & becoming parents. Secretary Buttigieg is the first out LGBTQ person ever confirmed for a Cabinet level position by the U.S. Senate. Buttigieg spoke about wanting to have children on the campaign trail back in April 2019. On Twitter Pete Buttigieg stated, “For some time, Chasten & I have wanted to grow our family. We’re overjoyed to share that we’ve become parents! The process isn’t done yet & we’re thankful for the love, support & respect for our privacy that has been offered to us. We can’t wait to share more soon." Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Institute concluded, “On the campaign trail, Pete & Chasten upended stereotypes & transformed perceptions for millions of Americans less familiar with LGBTQ people & their lives. As parents, they will now shine a national spotlight on LGBTQ families, who often face daunting challenges because of outdated policies that narrowly define what families are. Their adoption is an opportunity to have a national dialogue about creating a legal & legislative framework that supports all parents & children. Yet this is primarily about love & family & we are absolutely thrilled for Pete & Chasten & know they will be fantastic fathers.” The LGBTQ Victory Institute works to achieve & sustain global equality through leadership development, training & convening to increase the number, expand the diversity & ensure the success of openly LGBTQ elected & appointed officials at all levels of government.
