Pete Buttigieg helps 9-year-old come out to the world in emotional exchange
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg shared a heartfelt moment on Saturday when a young boy asked the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor to help him come out to the world. "Thank you for being so brave," 9-year-old Zachary Ro wrote in a question read during the openly gay candidate's rally in Denver. "Would you help me tell the world I'm gay, too? I want to be brave like you." Zachary, who reportedly attended the rally with his parents, then joined Buttigieg onstage and gave him a bracelet as the crowd responded with loud applause. "I don't think you need a lot of advice from me on bravery. You seem pretty strong," Buttigieg told the child.
