Chasten Buttigieg: ‘I Wish I Could Tell You that’ Every Message I Receive Isn’t ‘Homophobic’

‘I wish I could tell you that every voicemail, email, social media message and text that I receive isn’t hateful, bigoted or homophobic’

CHASTEN BUTTIGIEG: "I wish I could stand here and tell you that all of the responses to my husband running for president have either been positive or that the criticisms have simply been about his policy decisions. I wish I could tell you that every voice mail, e-mail, social media message and text I received isn't hateful, bigoted or homophobic. I wish I could tell you that the world has unequivocally accepted Peter and I and our marriage, but I can't. And that's why we march."
