Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg is the highest ranking openly LGBTQ+ person to be confirmed by the Senate

Statement by PFLAG National Executive Director Brian K. Bond:

“For PFLAGers and LGBTQ+ people around the country, the nomination and confirmation of the first openly gay member of the Cabinet, Pete Buttigieg as Sec. of Transportation represents an historic milestone. More importantly, public servants like Buttigieg come prepared with the skills and plans to help our cities, suburbs, and rural communities build back better as the nation turns to address the crises of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
