In this current crazy world of politics and social divide, it's so heart-warming and refreshing to hear a voice that speaks with pride, confidence, understanding and hope. This is Pete Buttigieg. He is the first openly gay candidate running for president in 2020. This is such an amazing moment for all the two-spirited people in our Indigenous Nations, here and abroad, to see such a powerful representation in the political arena. With so many disheartening posts regarding anti-gay legislations all over North America and abroad, this is a much needed example for those of us who have been on this journey for a long time.
For those who still have a long way to go on your own personal journey of identity, or the journey of enlightening your mind, let this be a guiding light.
Listen to this man's heartfelt words and be a part of this momentous time in history. A time when the norms are being challenged, closed minds are encouraged to be open and the world begins to understand that the Creator makes NO MISTAKES!
