His husband is the first confirmed, LGBTQ person confirmed to a cabinet post. But Chasten Buttigieg is far from a demure politician’s spouse. He has always had his own voice, and now uses his platform to advocate for equal rights.

Chasten, whose husband is Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, is coming to Sunshine Cathedral on Oct. 12. A VIP reception, One On One With Chasten Buttigieg, is at 5 p.m. and the main public event, An Evening With Chasten Buttigieg, is at 7 p.m.

The night is a benefit for SAVE and the Reproductive Freedom Collective of Broward County. A $100 entry fee includes a copy of his book, “I Have Something To Tell You”.

In the book, he talks about life on the campaign trail (Pete ran for president in 2020), allyship, and legislative attacks on the trans community.

“It’s crushing to be told by people you loved or trusted that you should hide and suppress who you are,” he writes. says he was told to not draw attention to his marriage during the campaign. Rather than put one foot back in the closet, he and Pete publicly embraced their relationship.

SAVE Executive Director Todd Delmay says it is State Rep. Christine Hunschofsky who helped make the event come together. She has a personal relationship with Buttigieg. Of course, Buttigieg is familiar with the battles that Florida’s LGBTQ community faces. He has spoken to multiple groups in the state, offering encouragement and advice.
