‘Mayor Pete’ at Frameline’s Fall showcase

A documentary on former gay presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg screens next week.

Mayor Pete brings viewers inside Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the youngest President of the United States, providing an unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team from the earliest days of the campaign to his unlikely, triumphant victory in Iowa and beyond.

A riveting documentary from Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jesse Moss (Boys State), Mayor Pete brings viewers inside Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the youngest President of the United States, providing an unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team.

From the earliest days of the campaign to his unlikely, triumphant victory in Iowa and beyond, this film reveals what really goes on inside a campaign for the highest office in the land—and the myriad ways it changes the lives of those at its center. Recently appointed U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Buttigieg serves as the first openly LGBTQ+ Senate-confirmed Cabinet member in U.S. history. 

Mayor Pete not only showcases the political strides made by Buttigieg, a former military officer who served in Afghanistan, but also how far LGBTQ+ rights have come in the decade following the recall of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Join us for this special Veterans Day screening in the Castro, home of California’s LGBTQ+ civil rights movement. 

Mayor Pete screens at Frameline Fall Showcase on November 11 at 7:45pm. Get your tickets here.
