DescriptionSouth Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg came out as gay Tuesday, declaring in a lengthy and personal newspaper editorial that it took him years to accept that his sexuality is just “part of who I am.”

Buttigieg, the first-term Democratic mayor of Indiana’s fourth-largest city, said in the essay published in the South Bend Tribune that it wasn’t easy for him to divulge his sexuality, in part because Midwesterners “are instinctively private to begin with.”

But Buttigieg, 33, noted he was well into adulthood before he was prepared to acknowledge to friends and relatives that he’s gay.
