South Bend, Ind.'s Gay Mayor Weds in Supreme Style
The ceremony for Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Chasten Glezman featured some words from the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has tied the knot with his longtime boyfriend, Chasten Glezman. During the wedding ceremony, Rev. Brian G. Grantz read some of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's words from the 2015 marriage equality ruling: "Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right." Buttigieg, now 36, announced he was gay in 2015 after being elected mayor in 2012. The Navy Reserve lieutenant made a bid to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2017. He was also chosen as one of nine potential 2020 presidential candidates to meet with Barack Obama.
