Pete Buttigieg has focused heavily on his background when stumping across the nation, touting his identity as a younger voice in the Democratic party, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, and the hands-on mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Now the openly gay White House hopeful will return to Nevada to spotlight the history-making potential of his candidacy, headlining on Saturday a key gathering of LGBTQ leaders in the important early caucus state. “For far too long, LGBTQ people have had to fear that their dreams and their identities are mutually exclusive. We’ve had to see our rights and dignity debated by government bodies that don’t include our voices,” Sarah McBride, the Human Rights Campaign’s national press secretary, told CBS News.
