Buttigieg referred to his husband throughout the speech, thanking him for his support.
Thanks - Chasten - Fond - Strength - Grounding
“Thanks … Chasten, my love…I’m pretty fond of him too, for giving me the strength to do this and the grounding to be myself as we go,” he said.
Buttigieg discussed his life as a gay American in detail, challenging the idea that local governments could still keep gay couples from getting married.
Chasten - County - Clerk - Beliefs
“Take it from Chasten and me, you are certainly not free if a county clerk gets to tell you who you ought to marry based on their political beliefs,” he said.
Buttigieg thanked the Supreme Court for ruling in favor of gay marriage, allowing Chasten to be his lawfully married spouse.
