    Pete has a very bright future ahead of him, sad though I am to see him go. He has the levers to get into a cabinet. Indiana, while conservative, is not Texas. Winning statewide is not out of the question for him. There are plenty of liberal groups that will welcome him and enable him to build up his credibility with his weak constituencies.

    That the gay candidate was the most boring candidate in the race is a massive marker in the civil rights road.

    The future is very bright for him, I truly hope it's not the last we see of him. Gonna miss his eloquence on Twitter. Such a good talker.

    It was nice, but... let's not celebrate too soon. He was THE PERFECT non-offensive gay, and people still went after his sexuality. Still questioned whether he was gay. Still mocked his marriage, his love, his gayness even. And he was like... perfection. War Veteran. Religious. Happily Married. It's like in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? (1967); the point was Sidney Poiter was THE PERFECT black man for his daughter to want to marry. But learning to accept the perfect isn't a testament to whether people are enlightened or not. The true test is if the candidate ISN'T perfect. How nasty would the comments (from all sides) get?

    Vegan's left the building, my love. As for the film, PinkLens just reviewed it and gave it four stars too (a real cool Instagram account to follow, that explores all kinds of LGBT+ cinema from classic to modern, feature to short).

    I just want to say hello.

    While I'm not LGBTQIA I have supported the cause of those who are most of my life (since I was a teenager). One of my dearest childhood friends is trans, and she (formerly he) had a very rough time growing up in our small town (as you can imagine considering we are both in our 30s). Keep up the good fight people.

    Welcome to the thread. Oh, my heart goes out to your friend, it cannot be easier for her in any small town. She won't be the only trans person or LGBT+ person there, but there will be times it feels that way, and that's hard. That's why representation matters so much in media, so kids in that scenario can at-least see some example of "people like them" existing, and thriving.
