LGBT Civil Rights Activist David Mixner Endorses Pete Buttigieg for President of the United States

Longtime LGBT and Civil Rights activist David Mixner has endorsed Pete Buttigieg for President of the United States in an op-ed at Towleroad.

Newsweek once named Mixner the most powerful gay man in America, and he has been a highly regarded leader in American politics and international human rights for over 40 years.

Mayor Pete’s calm disposition will enable him to quietly and immediately correct Trump’s outrageous Executive Orders, regain the respect of leaders around the world, and repair admiration and trust in American institutions. His gentleness is his power. His ability to speak many languages and intellect will reestablish our alliances and America’s place around the globe. 

Our nation needs to heal, and we must invite all Americans to share his inclusive vision.

Mayor Pete’s military service in our endless wars overseas will give him a unique perspective in foreign policy and more importantly, earn the respect of those serving currently,  veterans and  leaders at the Pentagon.  His judgement will be sound, not ideologically driven, and in the best interest of America.  Buttigieg is a powerful voice for freedom, human rights and equality.

For LGBT(Q) Americans, he has already shattered the glass ceiling. Any young LGBT(Q) person growing up can now hope to run for President of the United States.

  1. I read the full article and I agree with most everything Mixner says but I don’t think ANY president can truly unite our divided nation. Pete may be able to make some progress in that direction, but I am certain that as soon as he is elected, the majority of Republican politicians will initiate their own “resistance” movement and President Buttigieg will be in their cross-hairs while they do everything in their power to thwart him and bring him down. We need to not only elect a Democratic president, but a House and Senate as well. Even then, it will not go smoothly.
