Pete Buttigieg Stopped Reading LGBTQ Media Because of Critiques on What Kind of Gay He Is

Mayor Pete Buttigieg told SiriusXM’s Clay Cane that he does not read Lgbtq Media because he can’t stand critiques calling him “too gay” or “not gay enough” or articles asking if he’s the “wrong kind of gay.”

Said Cane to Buttigieg: “I’m sure you’ve heard this before in LGBT circles that more masculine presenting men have more access. How different would it be if you were quote unquote ‘more effeminate?’

Replied Buttigieg: “It’s tough for me to know, right, because I just am what I am, and you know, there’s going to be a lot of that. That’s why I can’t even read the LGBT media anymore, because it’s all, ‘he’s too gay,’ ‘not gay enough,’ ‘wrong kind of gay.’ All I know is life became a lot easier when I just started allowing myself to be myself, and I’ll let other people write up whether I’m ‘too this’ or ‘too that.'”
